AAFCO Definition: Brewer's Rice


Definition: Brewer's Rice: The dried extracted residue of rice resulting from the manufacture of wort (liquid portion of malted grain) or beer and may contain pulverized dried spent hops in an amount not to exceed 3 percent.
Also Known As: "broken rice"
Brewer's rice is an inexpensive form of carbohydrate, and does not contain the full nutritional benefits of whole grain brown rice. Since cats are obligate carnivores, they do not require a large amount of grain in their diets, so this ingredient should be listed way down on any cat food label. Caution also should be used for cats with food allergies as rice is a known allergen.
