Ingredient Review

Our review of American Journey Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Lamb Recipe Soft & Chewy Dog Treats begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

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

The second 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 third 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 fourth 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.

The fifth ingredient is Salt. Salt is an essential mineral that consists primarily of sodium chloride. Pet food contains salt as a natural preservative that helps prevent the growth of bacteria and mold. It is also used as a flavor enhancer.
