FRUIT AND VEGETABLES
Sweet potato is a key ingredient included in all of our grain-free food range and offers these benefits;
- It’s a superfood with a wide range of vitamins and minerals and naturally gluten-free.
- Sweet potatoes are high in fibre which helps to promote a healthy digestive system and good stool formation. They are also soothing on the stomach which means they are perfect for more sensitive animals.
- They have a low glycemic index which means that they release glucose more slowly into the bloodstream. This means blood sugar levels remain more constant and provide a steady release of energy throughout the day.
- They are one of the best sources of Vitamin A. This is an antioxidant powerhouse and is thought to have anti-ageing properties along with helping to maintain good eyesight and to aid skin and coat condition.
- Sweet potato is also thought to have anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties as they are rich in beta-carotene, an antioxidant. They are also rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin B complex, Iron, Phosphorus and Magnesium.
- Sweet potatoes contain a lot of magnesium which can help with stress and promote calmness, relaxation and good mood.
- A concentrated source of highly-digestible vegetable protein.
- Great when used in combination with animal-based proteins as they complement each other to meet an animal’s nutritional requirements.
You might wonder why some recipes contain pea protein when others don’t? This is because different meat sources contribute different levels of protein to a recipe.
For example, if a lamb-based recipe doesn’t meet the overall desired level of protein from the meat ingredients we can include some pea protein to help increase the protein level of the recipe.
We always look to include meat proteins as the main source of protein as they are complete proteins that contain all the essential amino acids required by an animal.
That said, pea protein is a nutritious complementary protein source which is still easily digested and beneficial to the animal.
