Iams Active Maturity Large Breed ProActive Health Dog Food Review

When look at dog food recipes the first five ingredients are a good indication of the quality of the kibble. The first five ingredients are going to make up the majority of the dog food in most cases.
[tab:First Five Ingredients:]

First Five Ingredients of Iams Active Maturity Large Breed Dog Food:

  1. Corn Meal
  2. Chicken By-Product Meal
  3. Chicken
  4. Ground Whole Grain Sorghum
  5. Ground Whole Grain Barley

Corn Meal is the third ingredient. Corn provides your dogs with no nutritional value. Dogs digestive system have a hard time digesting this ingredient. If you feed your dog a corn kernel, you will get a corn kernel out. Corn in excess has also been linked to many case of dog allergies.

The second ingredient Chicken By-Products are basically low quality parts of the Chicken that are rejected form human consumption. We want to avoid this ingredient, unless the manufacture identifies what actually makes up their By-Product ingredients.

Chicken is the third ingredient. This ingredient is inclusive of its water content. Meaning that once the water is removed and the products becomes a dry ingredient it will lose a good portion of its weight, thus making it fall further in the ingredients list.

The fourth and fifth ingredients Sorghum and Barley are of decent quality grains.
