Ingredient Review

Our review of American Journey Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Duck Recipe Soft & Chewy Dog Treats 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 Vegetable Glycerin. Vegetable glycerin is a binder and sweeting agent. Also known as glycerol or glycerine, the vegetable glycerin in pet food is sometimes used to add a chewy texture or to bind other ingredients together.

The third ingredient is Chickpea Flour. Chickpea flour is finely ground chickpeas, nutritious legumes that are also known as garbanzo beans. The chickpea flour in pet food serve as a source of protein and fiber, as well as some grain-free carbohydrates.

The fourth ingredient is Sodium Alginate. Sodium alginate is a form of sodium (salt) extracted from brown seaweed. In pet food, sodium alginate is typically one component of a binding agent.

The fifth ingredient is Natural Smoke Flavor. Natural smoke flavor is a liquid made with real hardwood smoke that has been condensed for use as a culinary additive. In pet food, natural smoke flavor adds an appetizing aroma and taste.
