Ingredient Review

Our review of American Journey Limited Ingredient Diet Duck & Sweet Potato Recipe Grain-Free Canned Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Duck. Duck is meat from any member of the Anatidae waterfowl. In pet food, 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 Broth. Duck broth is made by boiling duck meat, skin, and bones to obtain nutrients including fat, vitamins, and minerals. When added to pet food, duck broth increases moisture and improves flavor.

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 Sunflower Oil. Sunflower oil is a type of culinary oil that is pressed from ripe sunflower seeds. In pet food, sunflower oil can be a good source of healthy fat, vitamin E, and Omega-6 essential fatty acids.

The fifth ingredient is Dicalcium Phosphate. In pet food, dicalcium phosphate serves as a supplemental source of calcium and phosphate, two minerals that are essential for your pet’s well-being.

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 Limited Ingredient Diet Duck & Sweet Potato Recipe Grain-Free Canned Dog Food.
