Our review of American Journey Grain-Free Dry Dog Food With Duck & Sweet Potato 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 Chicken Meal. In pet food, chicken meal is often listed as a source of protein. Chicken meal is produced by baking and grinding chicken meat and skin. As a dry form of animal protein, it is most often found in kibble and treats.
The third ingredient is Chondroitin Sulfate. Chondroitin sulfate is a natural anti-inflammatory agent that is often combined with glucosamine. The chondroitin sulfate in pet food, treats, and supplements is often intended to support healthy joint function, particularly in aging companion animals.
The fourth ingredient is Chickpeas. Chickpeas are legumes. Also known as garbanzo beans, the chickpeas in pet food serve as a source of protein and fiber, as well as some grain-free carbohydrates.
The fifth 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.
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 Grain-Free Dry Dog Food With Duck & Sweet Potato.
