Whole Grain Corn in Dog Food

Chicken is an excellent source of healthy protein for dogs. It is filled with essential amino acids to build strong muscles and help to maintain organs and tissue.

In addition to being a flavor that dogs love, chicken also delivers Omega 6 fatty acids that help sustain healthy skin and shiny coats along with B3 and B6 vitamins, phosphorous and selenium as well.

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.

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.

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.

CGM has over 60% crude protein and good for digestibility.
