Ingredient Review

Our review of Addiction New Zealand Forest Delicacies Raw Dehydrated Dog Food 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 Venison. Venison is meat from an elk, deer, or antelope. In pet food, venison can be an excellent source of protein, iron, vitamin B12, and many other essential nutrients to support your companion’s well-being. Venison can be a novel protein in diets for pets with sensitivities, too.

The third ingredient is Whole Oats. Whole oats have had their tough outer hulls removed before further processing into a coarse high-fiber substance, complete with nutritious bran. The whole oats in pet food are a source of carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, minerals to support your companion’s overall well-being.

The fourth 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 fifth ingredient is Papayas. Papayas are tropical fruits with edible, bright-orange flesh and large black seeds. While we humans might enjoy them in fruit salad, the papayas in pet food are often used as a source of digestive enzymes that help your companion’s body break down protein more efficiently.

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 New Zealand Forest Delicacies Raw Dehydrated Dog Food.
