High quality ingredient with abundant beneficial nutrients
Sweet Potatoes in dog food
Not a true potato at all, the sweet potato is nutritionally quite different from common potatoes. It contains much more fibre, it is an fantastic source of vitamin A, and is also rich in vitamins C and B6 and several minerals.
It is also much higher in sugar than common potatoes but despite this, recent studies have shown that sweet potatoes might actually be beneficial for diabetics since they can help to stabilize blood sugar levels and lower insulin resistance.
For both humans and dogs, sweet potatoes are generally regarded as a very high quality carbohydrate source.
