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

A good whole grain providing protien, fiber and many essential nutrients, it is an easily digestible carbohydrate source. Brown rice is also low in fat, but provides a good source of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids as well as Vitamin E.

May be a filler ingredient, contributing to a feeling of fullness after your pet eats it.
