Whole Grain Corn in Dog Food

Whole Grain Wheat contains the entire grain, including the germ, bran and endosperm. This means that it has more antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber than regular wheat.

Chicken Meal is a dry, rendered product from whole chickens that has been through some processing to remove water and fat. It looks like brown flour, and it's a highly concentrated protein/mineral resource.

Chicken meal is basically chicken with a longer storage time. It's a protein-rich food and also Vitamin B12, Tryptophan, Choline, Zinc, Iron, and Copper resource. However, it's an already processed material in dog food manufacturing and makes the food ultra-processed.

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.

Corn Gluten Meal is the principal protein of corn. Despite the name, corn gluten does not contain true gluten which makes it 100% gluten-free indeed.
