Ingredient Review

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

The first ingredient is Salmon Meal. Salmon meal is ground flesh from any fish in the salmon family, and in pet food, salmon meal might also include other parts of the fish including skin and organs. Salmon meal can be a good source of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids.

The second ingredient is Dried Potatoes. Dried potatoes are dehydrated potato tubers. Only the edible portion of the potato plant is used in production. In pet food, dried potatoes serve as a source of carbohydrates for energy, along with small amounts of vitamins and minerals. Potatoes can also enhance the texture of your companion’s food.

The third ingredient is Dried Tapioca. Dried 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, dried tapioca is often added to grain-free and gluten-free recipes.

The fourth ingredient is Chicken Fat. Chicken fat is a good source of omega-6 fatty acids including linoleic acid. In pet food, chicken fat also adds flavor, improves consistency, and serves as a source of the animal fat pets need for overall wellbeing.

The fifth ingredient is Mixed Tocopherols. Mixed tocopherols are a form of vitamin E. These antioxidants are used as a natural preservative. In pet food, mixed tocopherols help to prevent spoilage and oxidization.

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 Salmon Bleu Dry Dog Food.
