Brewers Rice in dog food

Lamb Meal is a dry, rendered product from whole lambs that has been through some processing to remove water and fat. This is a combination of the flesh, bone, as well as the skin of the lamb. It's better to check the quality of the source otherwise, traces of unremoved wool and grain (from the stomach) can be food.

Lamb meal promotes a healthy heart as well as healthy skin! For dogs with sensitivities, lamb meal is a highly digestible protein source providing essential amino acids and fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals for muscle development and energy.

Brewers Rice is no different from white rice, except that the grain is broken into pieces. As such, it offers the same nutritional value as white rice with trace amounts of Iron, Vitamin B6, Magnesium and Calcium and Potassium.

Brewers rice is often used as an inexpensive filler ingredient to add volume to dog food and also it increases digestibility

Sorghum is one of the main cereal crops in the world and is a stable source of nutrition. Sorghum is a favorite of those that are gluten intolerant and is beneficial for increasing the functionality of the digestive tract.
