Ingredient Review

Our review of American Journey Duck & Sweet Potato Recipe Limited Ingredient Dog Treats begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Deboned Duck. Deboned duck is meat from any member of the Anatidae waterfowl, with all bones removed. In pet food, deboned duck can serve as a primary protein source as well as a source of animal fat, minerals, and amino acids. It is sometimes used as a novel protein, and is often an ingredient in diets formulated specifically for pets with allergies.

The second ingredient is Duck Meal. Duck meal is cooked, dried, finely ground meat from any member of the Anatidae waterfowl. In pet food, duck meal can serve as a protein source as well as a source of animal fat, minerals, and amino acids. It is sometimes used as a novel protein and is often an ingredient in diets formulated specifically for pets with allergies.

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 Pea Flour. Pea flour is a fine powder made with peas. In pet food, pea flour is a low-cost source of protein, fiber, and gluten-free carbohydrates.

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.

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 Duck & Sweet Potato Recipe Limited Ingredient Dog Treats.
