Introducing our range of Grain Free Treats For Dogs
Pet owners are increasingly conscious of the importance of providing their four-legged friends with the best possible nutrition. As a result, the demand for healthier and more natural pet products has increased. In response to the new market demand, Pointer’s New Product Development team have developed new recipes for grain free treats for dogs. These treats offer a variety of flavours along with nutrition, and all in Grain Free recipes for pet owners who struggle to find treats for their four-legged friends, which won’t upset their stomachs.
Grains, such as wheat, rice, oats, barley and many more have always been used as ingredients in dog treats. However, more and more dog owners notice that their pets might not tolerate grain and look for treat alternatives to reward their pets with. A grain free treat is considered to be any dog treat manufactured to contain no added grains such as wheat and cereals. These include carbohydrate ingredients such as rice, oats, wheat, barley, sorghum (an ancient grain), and maize.
There are many common misconceptions and lack of clarity around the differences between grain, wheat and gluten free in the dog food industry. Mostly because of the diverse range of different grains and cereals available in dog treats, some which contain wheat or wheat gluten and others that do not. As a grain-free treat should not contain wheat or any grains, it therefore would be wheat free and wheat gluten free as well as grain free and gluten free. However, it is important to note that a wheat free dog treat may not be gluten free – barley, for example, is wheat gluten free but still contains gluten.
Health Benefits of Grain Free Treats For Dogs:
- Allergen Reduction: Many dogs suffer from allergies or are sensitive to certain grains, which can cause skin irritations, digestive issues and other health issues. By removing grains from the ingredient list, grain-free treats help reduce the risk of allergic reactions.
- Grains can be heavy in carbohydrates, contributing to weight gain in dogs. Grain-free treats, formulated with alternative ingredients like sweet potatoes, fruits, and vegetables, propose a lower-calorie option for pet owners worried about their furry friend’s weight.
- Removing grains in treats allows for a more balanced and nutritional formula. Using natural ingredients like meat, fish can boost energy levels, promote healthier coat and skin.
