Whole Grain Corn in Dog Food
Chicken by-products meal as a dog food ingredient

Whole Grain Corn contains bran, cereal germ, and endosperm as a whole instead of just the endosperm. Corn is a fibrous grain and it provides easily digestible carbohydrates that makes it a key energy source. Also corn has linoleic acid, an essential omega-6 fatty acid to maintain healthy skin, coat and immune system.

Chicken By-Product Meal is rendered mix of less desirable parts (eg. gizzards, giblets, feet), internal organs (eg. lungs, spleen, liver, heart, kidneys) and bones of a chicken.

Chicken by-products are protein rich like chicken and also it's a natural source of Chondroitin Sulfate and Glucosamine. However, it's an already processed material in dog food manufacturing and makes the food ultra-processed.
