Whole Grain Corn in Dog Food

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.

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

Is a high quality protein ingredient, though obviously less ideal than meat. Some critics contend that this kind of bean may cause allergic issues in canines, though opinions vary widely.
