Ingredient Review

Our review of American Natural Premium Chicken Meal & Brown Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first 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 second ingredient is Brown Rice. Brown rice is a name for whole-grain rice with its outer hull removed. The brown rice in pet food can be a source of carbohydrates and fiber. Brown rice also contains omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals.

The third ingredient is White Rice. White rice is a gluten-free cereal grain that has been processed to remove the high-fiber layer that gives rice its natural brown color. In pet food, white rice is a source of easily digestible carbohydrates.

The fourth ingredient is Pearled Barley. Pearled Barley is the cereal grain barley with its outer hull removed. In pet food, pearled barley serves as a source of carbohydrates. It is lower in nutrients than whole barley or barley groats.

The fifth ingredient is Oatmeal. Oatmeal is made with oats that have had their tough outer hulls removed before further processing into a coarse high-fiber substance. The oatmeal in pet food is a source of carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, minerals to support your companion’s overall well-being.

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 Natural Premium Chicken Meal & Brown Rice Recipe Dry Dog Food.
