Ingredient Review

Our review of Addiction Grain-Free Le Lamb Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Lamb Meal. Lamb meal is the rendered, ground, and dried meat from a young sheep. In pet food, lamb meal can be an important source of protein fat, vitamins, and minerals.

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 Peas. In pet food, iron proteinate is added as an easily absorbed form of the essential mineral iron. Your pet needs iron to produce hemoglobin, which transports oxygen throughout the body.

The fourth ingredient is Fish Meal. Fish meal is cooked, ground meal made from fish meat and other edible parts of a fish of any species. The fish meal in pet food is usually included as a source of protein although it may offer other nutrients as well.

The fifth ingredient is Tapioca. Tapioca is a type of starch that comes from the cassava root. It is often used as a filler or binder, as well as a source of easily digested carbohydrates. In pet food, tapioca is often added to grain-free and gluten-free recipes.

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 Grain-Free Le Lamb Dry Dog Food.

There are 24 notable exceptions including good ingredients and controversial ones.
