Chicken by-products meal as a dog food ingredient

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.

Barley is source of carbohydrates for energy, B vitamins and fiber for a healthy digestive system. In some cases it has been known to lower cholesterol. It's a good alternative grain for dogs that are allergic to corn or 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.

This is a source of extra protein.
