Ingredient Review

Our review of American Journey Salmon Recipe Grain-Free Oven Baked Crunchy Biscuit 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 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 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 Chickpeas. Chickpeas are legumes. Also known as garbanzo beans, the chickpeas in pet food serve as a source of protein and fiber, as well as some grain-free carbohydrates.

The fifth ingredient is Cane Molasses. Cane molasses is a byproduct of the sugar production process. It is sourced from sugar cane. In pet food, cane molasses is primarily used as a sweetener or as a natural source of brown color.

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 Salmon Recipe Grain-Free Oven Baked Crunchy Biscuit Dog Treats.
