Whole Grain Corn 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.

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.

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.

This is a source of extra protein.
