Ingredient Review

Our review of 4Legz Molasses Ginger Snap Dog Treats begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Organic Rye Flour. Organic rye flour is made with rye grain that has been grown without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. Organic rye has a lower gluten content than wheat but it is not gluten-free. In pet food, organic rye flour adds flavor and color while providing bulk and acting as a source of carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.

The second ingredient is Oat Flour. Cobalt glucoheptonate is a supplemental form of the trace mineral cobalt. In pet food, cobalt glucoheptonate can help support the synthesis of red blood cells.

The third ingredient is Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses. Unsulphured blackstrap molasses comes from sugar cane – not corn or beets, and has not been treated with sulphur. It is a dark brown, lightly sweet, sticky substance that contains a number of essential vitamins and minerals. In pet food, unsulphured blackstrap molasses is primarily used as a sweetener or as a natural source of brown color.

The fourth ingredient is Canola Oil. Canola oil – also known as rapeseed oil – is a oil pressed from rapeseeds. In pet food, canola oil serves as an inexpensive source of fat, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, and vitamins E and K.

The fifth ingredient is Ground Ginger. Ground ginger is a powdered form of the fragrant, spicy-tasting root from the Zingiber officinale (ginger) plant. In pet food, ground ginger can act as an antioxidant, flavoring agent, and anti-inflammatory agent.

After the fifth ingredient, the list includes all remaining ingredients. It’s worth noting that ingredients (other than nutritional supplements) located this far down on the list aren’t likely to have an impact on the overall rating of this 4Legz Molasses Ginger Snap Dog Treats.
