Ingredient Review

Our review of American Journey Landmark Delta Blend with Rainbow Trout and Herring Grain-Free Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Rainbow Trout. Rainbow trout is meat from cold-water fresh-water trout species. Often reserved for human consumption, the rainbow trout in pet food is high in protein and is a source of amino acids, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals.

The second ingredient is Herring. Herring is a general term for several species of saltwater fish. In pet food, herring can be a good source of protein, plus it offers many other important nutrients including essential fatty acids.

The third ingredient is Turkey Meal Source Of Glucosamine. When you see “turkey meal source of glucosamine” in pet products, it means that the dried, ground turkey contains cartilage and soluble proteins that contribute joint-supporting glucosamine to your companion’s meals.

The fourth 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 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 Landmark Delta Blend with Rainbow Trout and Herring Grain-Free Dry Dog Food.
