It is found in all grains (wheat, rye, barley, oats, spelt, kamut, rice, and corn) but rice and corn gluten does not cause food borne diseases such as celiac disease. Feeding your pet gluten-free products can help with proper maintenance of the digestive system because, a low presence of gluten puts less stress on the pancreas in producing enzymes to dissolve ingested starches.
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease of the small intestine, and is precisely due to an intolerance to gluten. Our pets have adapted to an industral diet extremely rich in starches and gluten, something that is not naturally part of their DNA. It is therefore not uncommon to experience a response from the immune system and the digestive system itself, which does not recognize the food and causes widespread discomfort in the dog.
Gluten Free foods are totally free of gluten. This protein, used to replace those derived from animals, can be indigestible in some Pets. This symbol guarantees the absence of gluten in recipes.
