Ingredient Review

Our review of American Journey Beef Recipe Grain-Free Soft & Chewy Snacking Sticks Dog Treats begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Beef. Beef is meat from any cattle breed. In pet food, beef can be fresh, freeze-dried, dehydrated, ground, or finely processed into beef meal.

The second ingredient is Chickpea Flour. Chickpea flour is finely ground chickpeas, nutritious legumes that are also known as garbanzo beans. The chickpea flour in pet food serve as a source of protein and fiber, as well as some grain-free carbohydrates.

The third ingredient is Sweet Potatoes. Sweet potatoes are added to pet food as an easy-to-digest source of grain-free and gluten-free carbohydrates. They contain high levels of fiber, along with a number of important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

The fourth ingredient is Potato Protein. Potato protein is an isolated protein that comes from potatoes. In pet food, potato protein is used as a low cost protein source as well as an emulsifier and texture-enhancing agent.

The fifth ingredient is Molasses. Molasses is a byproduct of the sugar production process. It is a brown, sweet, sticky substance with high iron content. In pet food, molasses is primarily used as a sweetener or as a natural source of brown color.

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 American Journey Beef Recipe Grain-Free Soft & Chewy Snacking Sticks Dog Treats.
