RC had rice as 2nd and 3rd ingredient which tells me MOST of the food is rice, since the order of ingredients goes listed by weight.
Also RC you would feed more per day.
With Fromm we also feed, twice a day, 3/4 cup to the adults over 3, 1 cup from age 2-3 and 1.25-1.5 cups for adolescents. Puppies we feed Fromm puppy and they get what is needed depending on age and poop consistency. Less poops, less food per feeding, doesn't make a huge difference in cost in the long run.
If you are looking for a GREAT food, with lower cost, I would recommend Nature's Logic.
