Ingredient Review

Our review of Addiction Meaty Bites Brushtail Dog Treats begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Brushtail. Brushtail is meat from a brushtail possum. In pet food, brushtail can be a good source of protein, amino acids, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and many other nutrients. Since brushtail is a novel protein, it can be found in foods meant for pets with allergies.

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 Vegetable Glycerin. Vegetable glycerin is a binder and sweeting agent. Also known as glycerol or glycerine, the vegetable glycerin in pet food is sometimes used to add a chewy texture or to bind other ingredients together.

The fourth ingredient is Natural Tocoperols. Natural tocoperols are a form of vitamin E. These antioxidants are used as a natural preservative. In pet food, natural tocoperols help to prevent spoilage and oxidization.

The fifth ingredient is Lecithin. Lecithin is fatty substance that is produced by plants and animals alike. In pet food, lecithin is used as a preservative as well as an emulsifier and smoothing agent. Lecithin may also support healthy brain and liver function.

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 Meaty Bites Brushtail Dog Treats.
