Rice Gluten?

Recommended Posts

Guest thatchickali

So I'm looking for a gluten-free dog food and I heard Nutro was gluten free, but the 3rd ingredient is Rice Gluten, is that safe??

Not that I will be eating it, but she licks my face a lot and it breaks my heart to make her stop.

If anyone knows I really appreciate the help.

Rice gluten, and corn gluten, are the proteins of those grains. They are not an issue for celiacs, unless you have a secondary intolerance to rice or corn.

If I recall correctly, almost all Nutro products are gluten free, but there are a couple of formulas with oats. I know the dry chicken (pale green bag) has oats in it. No Nutro product contains wheat or rye.

Pet food is my business. I have posted a few times before on the subject of gluten free pet food. Search for "cat food" or "dog food" on the board, or go plowing through all of my posts.

Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000. I was retested five years later and the biopsy was normal. You can beat this disease!
