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

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.

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

Brown rice is a wholesome source of fiber and carbohydrates. A perfect choice for dogs, because this kind of complex carbohydrate is easier for them to digest than other kinds of carbohydrates, such as corn and wheat.

Brown rice is low in fat and is an excellent fiber source which promotes digestive health. It is also a good source of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids as well as Vitamin E.

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 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.
