Ingredient Review

Our review of The Honest Kitchen Limited Ingredient Diet Chicken Recipe Grain-Free Dehydrated Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Dehydrated Chicken. Dehydrated chicken is cooked, dried meat from the domesticated bird of the same name. In pet food, dehydrated chicken can be a source of protein, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.

The second ingredient is Organic Quinoa. Organic quinoa is an edible seed that can be eaten in place of a grain, and that has been grown without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. In pet food, organic quinoa can serve as a source of plant-based protein, fiber, and carbohydrates. It also contains vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.

The third ingredient is Dehydrated Sweet Potatoes. Dehydrated 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 Dehydrated Spinach. Dehydrated spinach is the dried form of the nutrient-dense leafy green that makes its way into many products for human consumption. In pet food, dehydrated spinach provides added nutrients including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

The fifth ingredient is Dried Parsley. Dried parsley is the dehydrated form of a common culinary herb that’s used in cuisines worldwide. In pet food, dried parsley typically serves as a flavoring agent.

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 The Honest Kitchen Limited Ingredient Diet Chicken Recipe Grain-Free Dehydrated Dog Food.

Your adult dog needs a balance of macro and micronutrients to thrive. A food formulated for adult maintenance or all life stages is made to meet these needs. While there can be a lot of variation in actual calorie density, adult dog foods are generally intended to provide for basic calorie needs of the average active dog. In addition to satisfying their energy needs, these foods provide the protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, and other nutrients your adult dog needs to survive. Again, not all adult foods are the same, so you may have to search around for the right fit for your dog.
