Ingredient Review

Our review of Addiction Grain-Free Mega Large Breed 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 Beef Meal. Beef meal is cooked, dried, finely ground meat from any cattle breed. In pet food, beef meal can serve as a protein source as well as a source of animal fat, minerals, and amino acids.

The third ingredient is Pork Meal. Pork meal is cooked, dried, and pulverized or ground tissue from swine. The pork meal in pet food is a source of protein, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.

The fourth ingredient is Potato. 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 fifth 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.

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 Mega Large Breed Dry Dog Food.
