Potatoes in dog food


Potatoes are becoming more popular in dog foods as anti-grain sentiment continues to increase. Potatoes are predominantly made up of starch, although some varieties like russet potatoes are especially starchy. There is some debate over the ability of dogs to digest starch efficiently but where it is digested it is broken down into its constituent simple sugars. For this reason, starchy foods like potatoes may not be the best choice for diabetic dogs. Potatoes do however also contain some dietary fibre as well as vitamin C, vitamin B6 and potassium.
