Iams Active Maturity 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 ProActive Health Dog Food:
- Corn Meal
- Chicken By-Product Meal
- Ground Whole Grain Sorghum
- Dried Beet Pulp
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.
The third ingredient Sorghum is a decent quality grain.
The fourth ingredient is Beet Pulp and is a controversial ingredient. It is claimed by some to cause allergies and ear infections.
Chicken is the fifth 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.
