Brewers Rice in dog food

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.

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

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.
