What You Should Know About Preservatives
A preservative is a substance that is used in order to delay the process of decaying.
Start asking yourself what EXACTLY is in the food that we eat and give to our pets! Human and animal food labels all include a list of unfamiliar substances and preservatives. When creating The Tasty Biscuit, my primary goal was to create treats for our dogs that we can feel good about. It was mind-blowing seeing all of the unnatural ingredients in dog food. As a result of constantly wondering whether it was safe or okay for our dogs, I took the wondering away and developed a healthy, and safe treat for them!
All of the biscuits from The Tasty Biscuit are made with natural ingredients. In fact all of these treats can even been eaten by humans. (Guilty, I’ve had them all). It’s now time to start feeling good about what we give ourselves and our pets. Dogs are such an important part of our lives and families. Why give them treats that are known to cause cancer, and other problems to their health? Providing healthy food and treats that do not have artificial ingredients can avoid some of the health problems that are associated with preservatives. Plus who wants to keep going to the vet? Not I!
Chemicals to Avoid:
Be aware of Butylated Hydroxyanisole (BHA), Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT), and Ethoxyquin. These are 3 chemicals that some companies use in their dog food and treats.
At The Tasty Biscuit Dog Treats, there are ZERO preservatives in our dog treats. Orders are made in small batches and shipped shortly after they are placed. They will go bad when food is naturally supposed to go bad. Think about it, would you want to eat something that’s been on your counter longer than a few weeks? This is why we suggest keeping them in the refrigerator or freezer.
My goal is to give all dogs the best life that we can give for them. In return these dogs give us all of their love and loyalty. Dogs are there for us when no one else is. It is amazing how dogs can save a persons life when their world seems lonely and cold. Dogs are our best friends, children, members of the family, and our therapy. Quality ingredients in treats and in food helps pave the way for a long, happy life for our dogs. Therefore we need to be conscious of the food and treats we give them.
Feel good about giving your dog one of our many flavors of dog treats. They are the perfect guilt free treat! Natural treats are healthy, health is wealth, wealth is power, and power is knowledge. Lets be mindful about giving our dogs treats with ingredients in their natural state to make their world a better place.
