Sometimes mistaken for a yam, this starchy root vegetable is packed with nutritional benefits for our beloved pups. You will find sweet potatoes added to many dog foods and treats because they are a healthy source of complex carbohydrates and are gentle on the digestive system.
Here are 4 reasons why we love them:
A wealth of minerals.
Sweet potatoes are packed with vital minerals including potassium, manganese, and magnesium. Potassium is key in preserving nerve transmissions and muscle function. This super food also contains calcium, iron, zinc, Vitamins B6 and Vitamin C.
Ever wonder why this vegetable has hues of purple? That's the beta-carotene magic. This powerful antioxidant gives sweet potatoes their yellow, orange, and sometimes purple coloring. After eating a sweet potato, the beta-carotene converts to Vitamin A in the body. Pretty cool, huh?
