Ingredient Review

Our review of Annamaet Grain-Free Aqualuk Cold Water Formula Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Salmon Meal. Salmon meal is ground flesh from any fish in the salmon family, and in pet food, salmon meal might also include other parts of the fish including skin and organs. Salmon meal can be a good source of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids.

The second ingredient is Field Peas. Also known as cowpeas, field peas are nutritious legumes that are often grown as cover crops. In pet food, field peas can provide protein, carbohydrates, and fiber, along with iron and many other important nutrients.

The third ingredient is Herring Meal. Herring meal is the ground, dried tissue from the herring fish. In pet food, herring meal can serve as a source of easily digested protein, amino acids, and essential fatty acids to benefit your companion’s overall health.

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 Potato. 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.

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 Annamaet Grain-Free Aqualuk Cold Water Formula Dry Dog Food.
