Brown Rice
A nutritious source of vitamins, minerals, tocotrienols, and fiber. Carbohydrate and starch sources such as brown rice are not a necessary component of a companion animal's diet, but they can be fed in moderation and variety without ill effects and with nutritional benefits. For a Starch Free™ alternative, the only of its kind, see Wysong Epigen™.
Corn
Corn is a natural source of carbohydrates, protein, and fiber.  Corn is easily digestible and contains small amounts of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Carbohydrate (starch) sources such as corn are not a necessary component of a companion animal's diet, but they can be fed in moderation and variety without ill effects and with nutritional benefits. (Especially when they are incorporated in modest amounts and in a form that is low glycemic index.) For a Starch Free™ alternative, the only of its kind, see Wysong Epigen™.
Corn Protein
Corn protein is obtained by removal of the starch, germ, and bran layers of whole corn.  Corn protein is highly digestible and low in ash content.
Soybeans
Soybeans are a well balanced source of protein, fat, and carbohydrates.  They provide a balanced amino acid profile and polyunsaturated fats.  Soybeans also contain minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, and zinc.

Soybean Oil
Contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. 
Pea Protein
A concentrated source of protein with an excellent spectrum of amino acids.
Flaxseeds
A source of a number of nutrients, fiber, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids vital for the health of skin, coat, cardiovascular, immune, nervous and reproductive systems.
Molasses
A rich source of minerals and natural flavoring for non-meat based diets.
Peas
A nutritious vegetable rich in protein, phyto-nutrients, phytosterols, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. Peas are also a good source of vitamins A, C, K and B.
Dicalcium Phosphate
Dicalcium phosphate is a source of calcium and phosphorus with high bioavailability.  Calcium and phosphorus are essential for healthy bone and teeth formation.  They also play vital roles in blood metabolism, muscle contraction, and nerve function.
Montmorillonite Clay
Sourced form an ancient geologic deposit of marine life.
Potato Protein
Potato protein is potato minus the starch. It is one of the highest value vegetable proteins there is.
Wheat Protein
Wheat protein is derived from whole wheat after most of the carbohydrates have been removed through processing.  It is a high protein source that is easily digestible.
Salt
Not standard, refined table salt. Wysong whole salt is mined from ancient trace mineral rich geological deposits.
Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is a natural source of short chain fatty acids.  It exerts beneficial effects on cholesterol, thyroid hormone, and blood sugar levels, and improves immune function. Coconut oil in a special Wysong processing step helps protect long-chain unsaturated fats (omega-3 and 6) from oxidation.
Taurine
An essential amino acid for cats and arguably for dogs as well. Taurine can be diminished in food processing and should be supplemented. It exerts a host of benefits for the cardiovascular, ocular, and central nervous systems. It is also an antioxidant and is important in muscular response to exercise. Wysong ingredients processed using Wysong special processing provide an excellent source of taurine. However, as insurance, taurine is also supplemented to the diets.
Lysine
Lysine is commonly insufficient in modern diets and is important for the synthesis of proteins to promote proper growth and bone development.  It also plays a role in the production of enzymes, antibodies, and hormones.
DL-Methionine
DL-methionine is an essential amino acid, meaning the body does not produce it and it therefore must be provided through the diet.  It contains sulfur and serves as a building block for producing proteins.  It also helps naturally acidify urine.  It is essential to both cats and dogs, but cats exhibit a higher demand for this amino acid.
L-Tryptophan
L-tryptophan is an essential amino acid, meaning the body does not produce it and it must be provided through the diet.   It serves as a building block for protein production and nitrogen balance.  It is best known for maintaining nerve cell conduction, relaxation, restfulness, and sleep.
Choline Chloride
Choline is a B-complex vitamin which helps to build cell membranes, promote nerve function, and maintain normal growth.  Choline also plays a significant role in fat metabolism, liver regulation, and renal protection.
L-Carnitine
Shuttles fatty acids into cell mitochondria where they are oxidized for energy. By so doing it decreases body fat and builds lean muscle by utilizing body fat for energy instead of carbohydrates. Proper fat metabolism becomes increasingly important as companion animals age and are prone to fat storage. L-carnitine also slows aging, protects bone mass, improves heart, kidney, liver, and brain functions, and benefits diabetes.
Chia Seeds
An excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids important to cardiovascular, immune, anti-inflammatory, and neurological functions. Chia seeds may also aid in maintaining proper weight and cholesterol levels. Chia seeds provide natural sources of fiber, antioxidants, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and manganese.
Sesame Seeds
Are particularly rich in the amino acid methionine. They also contain B-complex vitamins, protein, essential fatty acids, and essential minerals such as calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, manganese, selenium, and zinc. 
Rice Bran Oil
A concentrated source of tocotrienols, fatty acids, and other antioxidants. It is extremely stable under processing conditions 
Calcium Propionate
A preservative.
Dried Kelp
A particularly good source of trace minerals, such as iodine, potassium and calcium as well as vitamins.
Organic Barley Grass Powder
Harvested before the first joint rises above ground, this grass contains a wealth of bioavailable nutrients including enzymes, vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids.
Blueberry
A source of many nutrients and fiber, with high levels of antioxidants.
Citric Acid
Acts as a natural preservative by chelating oxidizing minerals.
Apple Pectin
A high fiber, antioxidant-rich ingredient derived from apples.
Yeast Extract
The cell walls of yeast that exert probiotic effects and support immune system health.

Minerals
While minerals are in food ingredients themselves, processing and modern farming practices may diminishes their levels and thus fortification is wise. Wysong minerals are in their most bioavailable forms including both inorganic and chelated proteinates.
Vitamins
While vitamins are in food ingredients themselves, processing diminishes their levels and thus fortification is wise. The safety and benefits of fortification are supported by hundreds of thousands of scientific studies. (See article No Vitamin, Mineral Processed foods.) Wysong fortifying vitamins include: Ascorbic Acid [source of Vitamin C], Vitamin E Supplement, Niacin Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin D2 Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement, Biotin, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Menadione Sodium Bisulfite Complex [source of Vitamin K activity], Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Thiamine Mononitrate, Folic Acid.
