Ingredient Review

Our review of Freely Vegetarian Recipe Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Wet Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first 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 second ingredient is Pea Protein. Pea protein is a good source of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. While the pea protein in pet food isn’t normally a primary protein source, it is easy to digest and it’s also a good source of fiber.

The third ingredient is Sweet Potatoes. Sweet potatoes are added to pet food as an easy-to-digest source of grain-free and gluten-free carbohydrates. They contain high levels of fiber, along with a number of important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

The fourth 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.

The fifth ingredient is Carrots. In pet food, carrots serve as a source of easily digested carbohydrate and fiber. Carrots contain many essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can help support your pet’s health.

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 Vegetarian Recipe Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Wet Dog Food.
