Why we use our ingredients
Oat flour: A great base flour for the cookies! Oats contain, protein, healthy fats, a lot of fiber, antioxidants, vitamin E, B vitamins, zinc, iron, and selenium all of which play an important role in maintaining and improving health.
Sorghum flour: Another great flour for promoting health benefits. Sorghum is a gluten free grain, is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and has a distinct sweetness to it, after all they make syrup out of it. It is a great alternative for dogs with a wheat sensitivity and promotes gut health.
Chickpea flour: Also known as garbanzo bean, it is an easily digestible protein, a source of folic acid, potassium, fiber, iron, magnesium, copper, zinc, phosphorus, thiamine, niacin, vitamin B6 and calcium. Why wouldn't we use this with all the health benefits, and it is also gluten free!
Apple: They are a good source of fiber, vitamins A and C, are low fat, low protein, and are sweet and tasty. With the antioxidants in apples the advantages for young and old dogs alike make it an easy choice to add to our cookies.
Carrot: Combined with the apples they are also low in fat, low in protein, high in fiber, beta carotene, vitamin A. They are not just for rabbits any more. Many dog foods now include carrots in their ingredients, but you can see the bit of carrots in our cookies.
Mint: It’s a good source of vitamins A and C, contains minerals such as calcium, copper, folate, iron, magnesium, manganese, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, riboflavin and zinc. Mint is a great antioxidant, and known for antibacterial, antiviral, antimicrobial, and anti-fungal properties. It is a calming and soothing herb that can be used to soothe an upset stomach, reduce gas, reduce nausea and motion sickness. It is also a breath freshener. With all these benefits we had to make a cookie with mint in it!
Parsley: Just like mint it is rich in vitamins A and C, vitamin K, iron, folic acid, and plenty of antioxidants. It helps with digestion, any inflammatory issues, and urinary tract issues. It smells good, tastes good, and is pleasing to dogs. Paired with the mint, it is like a super cookies for your dog.
