I don't personally know how good or bad most of those ingredients are for dogs, but Acana is a highly rated high quality kibble so I wouldn't worry too much if I were you.

As for salt, even if too much of it can be bad, sodium is an essential mineral. Too little of it is as bad as too much. So even when dog foods don't list added salt in the ingredients, there will be salt naturally in the food already. Maybe Acana naturally contained too little salt and felt the need to add more? I'm not sure. If it was a cheap low quality food I would be concerned, but seeing as Acana is a very good brand, I wouldn't worry about it.
