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.

Barley is source of carbohydrates for energy, B vitamins and fiber for a healthy digestive system. In some cases it has been known to lower cholesterol. It's a good alternative grain for dogs that are allergic to corn or wheat.

Oatmeal is a source of complex carbohydrates, releasing sugar and energy gradually, rather than overwhelming the body as simple carbohydrates may. They are a valuable source of dietary fiber, iron, and other essential vitamins.

Oats are especially high in B vitamins, which may aid in breaking down fats for the nervous system and help support muscle tone, skin, hair, and eye health. Oatmeal is considered an excellent source of dietary fiber and key vitamins and minerals.

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
