The Benefits of Sweet Potato

There are many things we all look for when selecting a high quality and nutritious food for our four-legged friends. High meat content, grain-free and no artificial flavourings always take top priority in our investigations of dried food. But anyone whos been looking around or having used the likes of the Faelan range will notice the prevalence of Sweet Potato within their dog food.

But why🍠?

Sweet potatoes have numerous nutritional benefits, which is why they are included in so many recipes.

First and foremost, they are a superfood with a variety of vitamins and minerals giving lots of benefits to your pets.

Sweet Potatoes are naturally gluten-free making them suitable for your dogs with grain intolerance/sensitivity. They are a great source of Vitamin A which provides important support for healthy eyes and vision as well as maintaining healthy skin and coat quality. The high fibre content may also be beneficial to promoting a healthy digestive system and proper stool formation.

They contain high levels of beta-carotene – a precursor of vitamin A and also a strong antioxidant which may have beneficial effects on the immune system and help protect cells from oxidative damage.

On top of all these, sweet potatoes have a low glycemic index which may be related to the high fibre content which helps to slow down the rate at which the glucose is absorbed into the bloodstream. This means that your pets blood sugar levels are more stable and give a consistent supply of energy throughout the day.

To conclude, Sweet Potato provides a wide range of benefits for your pets diet compared to other bulk alternatives like wheat and grains that are put into lower quality food. Being hypo-allergenic and great for a healthy diet, we recommend dried food that’s contain it.




And on a final note, did you know that Malawi is the 2nd largest producer of Sweet Potato, account for 13,000,000,000 pounds yearly. While it might not seem as impressive as China’s 114,622,946,961, considering China is 81 times larger than Malawi I think we can say the latter is pulling their weight.
