Our review of Addiction Grain-Free Wild Kangaroo & Apples Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.
The first ingredient is Dried Kangaroo Meat. Dried kangaroo meat is dehydrated muscle meat from the marsupial animal of the same name. In pet food, dried kangaroo meat can serve as a novel protein. It also offers amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.
The second 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 third 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.
The fourth ingredient is Peas. Pea is a general term to describe whole, split, or milled peas, which are a grain-free, gluten-free source of protein, fiber, and carbohydrates. In pet food, pea products serve as an energy source as well as a supplementary source of vitamins and minerals.
The fifth 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.
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 Wild Kangaroo & Apples Dry Dog Food.
