Something Grain Free This Way Comes – Sweet Potato with Cranberries

With the holiday season kicking into gear, it seems only right to chat about something festive… Our new Grain Free Sweet Potato with Cranberries Juniors and Minis!  Now, I know what you’re thinking – it is Christmas, not Thanksgiving – but level with me.  Who wouldn’t want sweet potato to be considered Every Holiday’s Potato?  That’s right, a resounding no one. So I’m going to go ahead and introduce this power food into our Christmas vocabulary.  You can thank me later.  As we move into the second featured flavour in our series on the all-new Grain Free Juniors and Minis line here at Northern Biscuit, we’re going to take a look at the powerhouse features of our star ingredients, sweet potato, cranberries, chia and flax seeds, and our old friend buckwheat flour! 

Lets start with the star of the show – Sweet Potato! Now, this stem vegetable may look pretty, with its vibrant orange hue, but there is nothing more beautiful about the sweet potato than the sweet things it can do for your pup.  Almost every health benefit is taken care of in this one delicious treat, beginning with the task of keeping our furry little friends in peak physical shape.  Sweet potatoes contain a super power-packed anti-oxidant called betacarotene that performs its duties a lot simpler than the name would suggest. When ingested, betacarotene converts to vitamin A, which helps improve and maintain a dog’s vision, helps with their overall growth, and improves muscle strength! Sounds pretty great, doesn’t it? Well the greatness doesn’t end there! In addition to this vitamin A opportunity, sweet potatoes are high in fibre to help with your pup’s digestive system, high in minerals such as potassium, calcium, and iron, and the best part? With all of these perks packed into the treat both humans and dogs love, the sweet potato is actually low in fat and sodium! Seems too good to be true? Well start believing, because this vegetable seems to be able to do no wrong for your pup’s health.

Now, I could go on about the powers of sweet potatoes for days, but that would leave no time for the other key players in this fun new flavour of Grain Free. So now moving on to the next best ingredient that your dog can look forward to enjoying with our new treats – cranberries! These small tart fruits may seem fairly inconspicuous, but I’m here to tell you, my friends, about the beauties of this wonder-berry! First and foremost, cranberries are famous in the human world for helping to maintain bladder health – did you know that they are famous in the dog world for the same reason? Cranberries lower the pH levels in your dogs urine, and prevent bacteria from lining the bladder wall keeping your pup in tip-top shape in every way.  In addition to this helpful feature of the bright red superstar fruit, cranberries also contain vitamin C and vitamin E which are both pertinent in boosting a dog’s immune system to maintain and improve their health with every day that goes by! Cranberries appear to laugh in the face of sickness, as they work harder than anything to keep your pup happy and healthy.

Our final star players in this fantastic new addition to the Northern Biscuit Grain Free family are our old friends, chia, flax, and buckwheat flour.  Although the wondrous powers of these three impressive ingredients were outlined in our previous Salmon with Kelp conversation, they are too good to simply leave unmentioned.  In one corner, we have our chia and flax doling out those omega-3 fatty acids, helping make sure your pup looks as good as they feel with the skin soothing properties of this miracle feature. In the other corner we have buckwheat flour providing your four-legged friend with enough fibre to tend to all of the digestive health and happiness they could need! Together, these three brilliant bonuses round off the perfect treat with their health benefits that just don’t quit.

On that note, this is where I leave you to explore the wonderful world of Northern Biscuit Grain Free Sweet Potato with Cranberries treats!
