Ingredient Review

Our review of Adirondack 21% Adult Everyday Recipe Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Pork Meal. Pork meal is cooked, dried, and pulverized or ground tissue from swine. The pork meal in pet food is a source of protein, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.

The second ingredient is Brown Rice. Brown rice is a name for whole-grain rice with its outer hull removed. The brown rice in pet food can be a source of carbohydrates and fiber. Brown rice also contains omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals

The third ingredient is Ground Grain Sorghum. Ground grain sorghum is made with gluten-free grain from the sorghum plant. It has been processed into smaller particles for better absorption and a smoother texture. In pet food, ground grain sorghum can serve as a source of dietary fiber, antioxidants, iron, zinc, and vitamins B1 and B2.

The fourth ingredient is Oat Groats. Oat groats are whole seeds from the oat plant that have had their tough outer hulls removed. The oat groats in pet food are a source of carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, minerals to support your companion’s overall well-being.

The fifth ingredient is Pearled Barley. Pearled Barley is the cereal grain barley with its outer hull removed. In pet food, pearled barley serves as a source of carbohydrates. It is lower in nutrients than whole barley or barley groats.

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 Adirondack 21% Adult Everyday Recipe Dry Dog Food.

Your adult dog needs a balance of macro and micronutrients to thrive. A food formulated for adult maintenance or all life stages is made to meet these needs. While there can be a lot of variation in actual calorie density, adult dog foods are generally intended to provide for basic calorie needs of the average active dog. In addition to satisfying their energy needs, these foods provide the protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, and other nutrients your adult dog needs to survive. Again, not all adult foods are the same, so you may have to search around for the right fit for your dog.
