Ingredient Review

Our review of ALPO Gravy Cravers Roast Beef Flavor, Chicken Flavor & Beef Flavor Variety Pack Wet Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Water Sufficient. In pet food, the term water sufficient typically refers to the amount of water that is needed to process the rest of the ingredients.

The second ingredient is Chicken. Chicken is meat from the domesticated bird of the same name. In pet food, chicken is used as a primary protein source.

The third ingredient is Meat By Products. The meat by products in pet food may be organs such as liver, kidneys, lungs, heart, and more, as well as meat left over from butchering. While meat by products include offal that isn’t meant for human consumption, it may not contain hooves, horns, teeth, or animal hides.

The fourth ingredient is Wheat Gluten. Wheat gluten is a good source of digestible protein. In pet food, wheat gluten is used as a binding agent and texturizer as well as a protein source.

The fifth ingredient is Turkey. Turkey is an easily digested meat that’s relatively low in fat. In pet food, turkey might be the primary protein source or it may be part of a blend made with different proteins.

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 ALPO Gravy Cravers Roast Beef Flavor, Chicken Flavor & Beef Flavor Variety Pack Wet Dog Food.
