Brewers Rice in dog food
Chicken by-products meal as a dog food ingredient

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

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.

Chicken Fat is a high quality source of energy and essential fatty acids. For example, chicken fat contains linoleic acid which is an excellent source of the Omega-6 fatty acids. Quality fats support a shiny, healthy coat in dogs.

This is a source of extra protein.

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.
