Re: What is wrong with grain, rice or oats ?

In relation to my own diet, I tend to use brown rice, quinoa, and oats (not in the instant sachets)  The least amount of processing and refining the better. From bits I have read about refined carbs and how they are metabolised in humans, the fibre is key to getting the full nutritional value and also to the foods effects on  hormones like insulin and leptin which control appetite and blood sugar.. I am not sure if it works the same way for dogs but I am happy to feed all the grains I eat to my dog and she tolerates them well. She does get refined carbs at times but only in moderation.
