Royal Canin Canada's site lists the tainted product as "rice gluten." Is this the same as "rice protein concentrate?" I'm confused! :-\

And should we now be concerned about "corn gluten" as well?! ???

According to my call to Nutro last night, yes, rice gluten and rice protein concentrate are the same thing. A couple of days ago (when the rice protein thing first came out), I called and asked them that. They said no, rice gluten and rice protein were not the same thing. Now they say they are.

But they said absolutely without a doubt that none of their ingredients come from the company with the tainted rice protein/gluten/whatever. God, I hope so. :(

You're not the only one confused!!!!!!! :( ???
