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.

This is assumed to be white rice and is still considered to be a better than average carbohydrate source for puppy and dog food. Although not as rich in nutrients a brown rice, white rice does provide some proteins, vitamins and minerals to this puppy food as well. Rice is also less likely to be involved in food allergies and so may be a good choice for those with sensitivities to other more common ingredients such as wheat and corn.

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.

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.
