Our review of Addiction Country Chicken & Apricot Dinner Grain-Free Raw Dehydrated Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.
The first ingredient is Chicken. Chicken is meat from the domesticated bird of the same name. In pet food, chicken is used as a primary protein source.
The second ingredient is Potatoes. Potatoes are versatile starchy root vegetables that provide carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and some fiber. In pet food, potatoes can add texture and flavor while replacing other starches. Many grain-free and gluten-free pet foods contain potatoes.
The third ingredient is Papayas. Papayas are tropical fruits with edible, bright-orange flesh and large black seeds. While we humans might enjoy them in fruit salad, the papayas in pet food are often used as a source of digestive enzymes that help your companion’s body break down protein more efficiently.
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 Apricot. Apricot is fruit from the apricot tree. You might not see apricot in pet food, but it may be added to treats as a source of moisture, flavor, and nutrients including vitamins C and A.
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 Addiction Country Chicken & Apricot Dinner Grain-Free Raw Dehydrated Dog Food.
