Ingredient Review

Our review of American Natural Premium Grain-Free Ocean Fish Meal & Potato Recipe Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Menhaden Fish Meal. Menhaden fish meal is dried, ground tissue from menhaden fish. In pet food, menhaden fish meal serves as a source of protein, amino acids, and essential fatty acids to help keep your companion’s skin and coat healthy.

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 Potatoes. Potatoes are versatile starchy root vegetables that provide carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and some fiber. In pet food, potatoes can add texture and flavor while replacing other starches. Many grain-free and gluten-free pet foods contain potatoes.

The fourth ingredient is Pea Flour. Pea flour is a fine powder made with peas. In pet food, pea flour is a low-cost source of protein, fiber, and gluten-free carbohydrates.

The fifth ingredient is Pork Meat Meal. Pork meat meal is cooked, dried, and pulverized or ground meat from swine. The pork meat meal in pet food is a source of protein, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
