"Rice protein concentrate" seems to go by the name "rice gluten" as well. Are there any other variations that need to be looked out for? How about brewers rice? Brown rice? Ground rice? Rice flour? Rice bran? The list could go on I'm sure.
Same goes for "wheat gluten". I know there are many wheat-based ingredients out there. Which ones are the most heavily processed and most likely to be contaminated?
How about "corn gluten"? The one probably scares me the most, as it seems like it is so widely used. Is corn meal ok? Ground corn?
Can anybody shed any light on this?
GLuten is a part of EVERY GRAIN it is the PROTEIN of the GRAIN....
WHEAT Barley and rye share a gluten that is identical ....
Oats, Spelt have a slightly different gluten from the above
Rice is the least allergenic gluten
Corn in humans and cats is lower than wheat but higher than rice
Gluten is the protein in a natural or a "stripped to element state"
concentrate is gluten that is augmented to make it more potent it usually has a higher protein ....
Right now on my vets advice I am going grain free .... but If I werent I would still serve corn gluten as it helps in UTI health and that is important to me ...
Corn gluten is a milled process ... I call it slightly stripped
Wheat gluten is highly highly process as is ALMOST all wheat that is not in a sprouted state
Rice gluten is similiar to corn gluten
HOPE that helps
