Ingredient Review

Our review of Freely Salmon Recipe Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Wet 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 Vegetable Broth. Vegetable broth is made by boiling vegetables to obtain nutrients including vitamins, and minerals. In pet food, vegetable broth increases moisture and improves flavor.

The third ingredient is Dried Sweet Potatoes. Dried sweet potatoes are dehydrated vegetables that offer flavor while serving as a source of easy-to-digest grain-free and gluten-free carbohydrates. The dried sweet potatoes in pet food contain high levels of fiber, along with a number of important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

The fourth ingredient is Dried Lentils. Dried lentils are legumes. In pet food, dried lentils are a source of protein, fiber, and nutrients including a number of essential vitamins and minerals.

The fifth 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.

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 Freely Salmon Recipe Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Wet Dog Food.
