Whole Grain Corn in Dog Food

Chicken By-Product Meal is rendered mix of less desirable parts (eg. gizzards, giblets, feet), internal organs (eg. lungs, spleen, liver, heart, kidneys) and bones of a chicken.

Chicken by-products are protein rich like chicken and also it's a natural source of Chondroitin Sulfate and Glucosamine. However, it's an already processed material in dog food manufacturing and makes the food ultra-processed.

Corn is a fibrous grain that promotes gut health as well as gastrointestinal motility. It provides easily digestible carbohydrates, and 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.
