Wheat Free Dry Dog Food Comparison
Is there really a difference between a wheat-based dry dog food and a wheat-free dry dog food? This is a common question that I get asked all the time and I thought I would look at the differences between these two types of foods.
The first difference between a wheat-based and a wheat-free dry dog food is the way they are processed. In processing a food product it means removing any solid matter from the food before it is processed. For example when I buy a can of tuna in the summer, I know that the first few cans that I get will have any remaining solid tuna removed so that I can eat the fish right away.
During the production of wheat-based food, grains are steamed or boiled or even mixed with other ingredients for additional texture or a different appearance. This is why wheat-based dry dog food has more texture and less “grittiness” than a wheat-free dry dog food.
Another key difference between a wheat-based and a wheat-free dry dog food is that wheat is used as an ingredient in a lot of processed foods. Many of the vitamins and minerals in dog food are derived from wheat. That is why many pet foods contain wheat as an ingredient, and it is also why wheat is used as a filler.
A company named L’il’ Miss is the manufacturer of a product called the wellness core dry dog food. This is a high quality, all natural dog food that contains a very low percentage of wheat. The reason that the health food company chose to use wheat as a filler in this product is because it is very inexpensive, especially for such a major ingredient.
Now that you know some of the differences between a wheat-based and a wheat-free dry dog food, the next question is where do you find one? With the internet comes tons of great information, and websites that sell dog food with a wheat-free label are everywhere. Look for a good website that sells low cost dog food with quality ingredients.
I have been using the wellness core dry dog food for several years now and have found it to be exactly what I need. My dogs are all on the program now and all have pretty consistent weight gain. It would not surprise me at all if this is just the beginning of something big with this product.
The best thing about buying dog food on the internet is that you can read the reviews of the many other people who have purchased this same food. If you see a bad review or a good review, you can read both and decide for yourself which way to go.
There are many other things that you should know about both a wheat-based and a wheat-free dry dog food. Check out my blog and see if you can figure out what to do with your dog if you start seeing signs of vitamin deficiency or if they are having difficulty breathing.
A great alternative to the wheat-free dry dog food is the Health River wheat-free dry dog food. You will find that it is a natural combination of ingredients that contain all the vitamins and minerals that your dog needs to stay healthy and happy.
And as a side note, the Health River wheat-free dry dog food is also the product that the owners of L’il Miss make by far the best. You will not find a better product in the dry dog food industry.
So I hope that you have learned something new about a wheat-free dry dog food and that you made an informed decision about your dog’s diet. Good luck!
