Ingredient Review

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

The first ingredient is Deboned Salmon. Deboned salmon is meat from any species of salmon fish, with the bones removed. The deboned salmon in pet food is an excellent source of protein, Omega-3 fatty acid, and many other vital nutrients.

The second ingredient is Salmon Meal. Salmon meal is ground flesh from any fish in the salmon family, and in pet food, salmon meal might also include other parts of the fish including skin and organs. Salmon meal can be a good source of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids.

The third ingredient is Peas. In pet food, iron proteinate is added as an easily absorbed form of the essential mineral iron. Your pet needs iron to produce hemoglobin, which transports oxygen throughout the body.

The fourth ingredient is Pea Starch. Pea starch is a gluten-free starch that comes from ground peas. The pea starch in pet food is a source of carbohydrates, and is typically used as a thickener, filler, or gelling agent.

The fifth 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.

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 & Sweet Potato Recipe Dry Dog Food.

There are 14 notable exceptions including good ingredients and controversial ones.
