Ingredient Review

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

The first ingredient is Salmon. Salmon is meat from any fish in the salmon family, and in pet food, salmon might also refer to other parts of the fish including skin and organs. Salmon is an excellent source of protein, and it is a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids.

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 Hydrolyzed Dried Egg Product. Hydrolyzed dried egg product is egg protein that has been processed to isolate its amino acids. When added to pet food, hydrolyzed dried egg product can make it easier for your companion to digest and absorb the protein, amino acids, and other nutrients it contains.

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.

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 Grain-Free Salmon Recipe Soft & Chewy Dog Treats.
