Ingredient Review

Our review of Joy Pure Grain-Free Chicken and Potatoes Dry Dog Food 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 Dried Peas. Dried peas are dried seeds from any edible pea plant species. The dried peas in pet food are typically ground to provide a source of plant-based protein, fiber, and other important nutrients.

The third ingredient is Dried Potatoes. Dried potatoes are dehydrated potato tubers. Only the edible portion of the potato plant is used in production. In pet food, dried potatoes serve as a source of carbohydrates for energy, along with small amounts of vitamins and minerals. Potatoes can also enhance the texture of your companion’s food.

The fourth ingredient is Chicken Fat. Chicken fat is a good source of omega-6 fatty acids including linoleic acid. In pet food, chicken fat also adds flavor, improves consistency, and serves as a source of the animal fat pets need for overall wellbeing.

The fifth ingredient is Mixed Tocopherols. Mixed tocopherols are a form of vitamin E. These antioxidants are used as a natural preservative. In pet food, mixed tocopherols help to prevent spoilage and oxidization.

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 Joy Pure Grain-Free Chicken and Potatoes Dry Dog Food.
