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.

When we analyzed the ingredients in American Journey Limited Ingredient Diet Duck & Sweet Potato Recipe Grain-Free Canned Dog Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from meat based sources.

Nutritional Analysis

Your adult dog needs a balance of macro and micronutrients to thrive. A food formulated for adult maintenance or all life stages is made to meet these needs. While there can be a lot of variation in actual calorie density, adult dog foods are generally intended to provide for basic calorie needs of the average active dog. In addition to satisfying their energy needs, these foods provide the protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, and other nutrients your adult dog needs to survive. Again, not all adult foods are the same, so you may have to search around for the right fit for your dog.
