Ingredient Review

Our review of American Journey Birthday Beef Recipe Grain-Free Soft-Baked 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 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.

The third 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 fourth ingredient is Vegetable Glycerin. Vegetable glycerin is a binder and sweeting agent. Also known as glycerol or glycerine, the vegetable glycerin in pet food is sometimes used to add a chewy texture or to bind other ingredients together.

The fifth ingredient is Carrots. In pet food, carrots serve as a source of easily digested carbohydrate and fiber. Carrots contain many essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can help support your pet’s health.
