Ingredient Review

Our review of Addiction Zen Holistic Vegetarian Formula Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Oats. Oats are seeds from the oat plant, usually with their tough outer hulls removed before further processing into a coarse high-fiber substance. The oats in pet food are a source of carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, minerals to support your companion’s overall well-being.

The second ingredient is Soya. Soya is another name for soy, a legume that is grown for its versatile edible beans. In pet food, soya can be a source of protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It is often used as a filler or as a low-cost meat substitute.

The third ingredient is Rice. Rice is a gluten-free cereal grain. In pet food, rice is a source of easily digestible carbohydrates.

The fourth ingredient is Canola Oil. Canola oil – also known as rapeseed oil – is a oil pressed from rapeseeds. In pet food, canola oil serves as an inexpensive source of fat, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, and vitamins E and K.

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.
