Ingredient Review

Our review of Inukshuk Professional Dry Dog Food 26/16 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 Fish Meal. Fish meal is cooked, ground meal made from fish meat and other edible parts of a fish of any species. The fish meal in pet food is usually included as a source of protein although it may offer other nutrients as well.

The third ingredient is Ground Whole Grain Barley. Ground whole grain barley is a cereal grain that has been milled into smaller fragments for better digestibility. In pet food, whole grain ground barley serves as a source of carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals including iron.

The fourth ingredient is Ground Whole Grain Corn. Ground whole grain corn is made with cooked and/or dried kernels from any corn species. In pet food, ground whole grain corn can be a filler as well as source of inexpensive protein, carbohydrates, and fiber.

The fifth ingredient is Ground Whole Grain Wheat. Ground whole grain wheat is made with the edible grain from any variety of wheat plant. The grains are milled to improve nutrient absorption while adding texture. In pet food, ground whole grain wheat is a source of carbohydrates, protein, and other nutrients.

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 Inukshuk Professional Dry Dog Food 26/16.
