GLUTEN IN DOG FOOD
Protein plays an important part in choosing a dog food right for you. You’ll see a variety of different articles that tell you the importance of protein in a dog’s diet.
Protein is best known for supplying amino acids that build hair, skin, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. Protein also plays a key role in producing hormones and enzymes that help to regulate daily, basic functions.
When searching for a diet with a good level of protein, several brands will advertise their high protein count and still keep their prices cheap. This is where gluten comes into play.
Brands use gluten as a substitute to a good protein source to keep prices low & protein levels high. Gluten is what’s left over from certain grains like wheat, barley, rye and other wheat-type cereal grains that’s had all its starchy carbohydrate washed out of it; leaving it as a low quality protein source.
Several dogs will suffer with several problems due to being fed a gluten based diet including itchy & irritating skin.
