Ingredient Review

Our review of 4Legz Peanut Butter & Carob Dog Treats, 7-oz bag 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 Organic Unsalted Peanut Butter. Organic unsalted peanut butter is a spread made from ground, roasted peanuts, often with other ingredients such as sugar and emulsifiers added. All ingredients used in the manufacture of organic unsalted peanut butter must be raised without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. In pet food, organic unsalted peanut butter is used as a flavoring agent and fat source; it’s usually found in treats rather than in kibble or wet food.

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 Carob Chips. Carob chips are a culinary alternative to chocolate chips. They are made with carob, which comes from milled, roasted pods that come from carob trees, and which has a flavor similar to chocolate. While they aren’t something you’ll often find in pet food, carob chips sometimes make their way into treats.

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 Peanut Butter & Carob Dog Treats, 7-oz bag.
