Ingredient Review

Our review of American Natural Premium Exhibitor's Choice 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 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 third 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.

The fourth ingredient is Whole Dried Eggs. Whole dried eggs are a combination of dehydrated egg white and dehydrated egg yolk. The whole dried eggs in pet food are a good source of healthy, easily digested protein, fat, vitamins, and minerals.

The fifth ingredient is Chicken. Chicken is meat from the domesticated bird of the same name. In pet food, chicken is used as a primary protein source.

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 Exhibitor's Choice Dry Dog Food.

There are 28 notable exceptions including good ingredients and controversial ones.
