Ingredient Review

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

The first ingredient is Deboned Lamb. Deboned lamb is meat from a young sheep, with all the bones removed. In pet food, deboned lamb may be a primary protein source as well as a source of animal fat, amino acids, and minerals.

The second ingredient is Lamb Meal. Lamb meal is the rendered, ground, and dried meat from a young sheep. In pet food, lamb meal can be an important source of protein fat, vitamins, and minerals.

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.
