The Real Research-Based Truth About Corn

The facts about corn in your dogs food

At Bil-Jac, dogs and their unique nutritional needs are at the heart of all we do. That’s why we only use ingredients that we know help keep your dog healthy. Research confirms slow-cooked corn provides dogs with:

1. A great source of healthy, available antioxidants

2. Lower blood glucose levels than rice

3. Great digestibility

Independent research substantiates:

 Corn has the highest total antioxidant activity (more than double) compared to rice, wheat or oats. It also contains a higher amount of antioxidants than many fruits or vegetables. (Cornell University)

 Slow cooking corn releases up to 900% more antioxidants. (Cornell University)

 Slow cooking corn releases more nutrients. (Cornell University)

 Corn fed to dogs produces a lower glycemic index than rice. (University of Queensland)

 Finely ground corn (corn meal) is 99% digestible for dogs. (University of Veterinary Medicine Hanover)

 Incidence of food allergies in dogs, while rare, are no higher for corn than rice. (Multiple Studies)

Corn, when cooked properly and used as a carbohydrate, has many benefits. Feed your dog a bowl of truth, not trends.
