Ingredient Review

Our review of American Journey Salmon & Sweet Potato Recipe Grain-Free Large Breed Puppy 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 Chicken Meal. In pet food, chicken meal is often listed as a source of protein. Chicken meal is produced by baking and grinding chicken meat and skin. As a dry form of animal protein, it is most often found in kibble and treats.

The third ingredient is Turkey Meal. The turkey meal in pet food is typically a byproduct of turkey meat production. Turkey meal is high in protein, and is easy for pets to digest. It is a good source of B vitamins and amino acids to support your pet’s overall well-being.

The fourth ingredient is Peas. Pea is a general term to describe whole, split, or milled peas, which are a grain-free, gluten-free source of protein, fiber, and carbohydrates. In pet food, pea products serve as an energy source as well as a supplementary source of vitamins and minerals.

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 Salmon & Sweet Potato Recipe Grain-Free Large Breed Puppy Dry Dog Food.
