Lol that's what my mom told me. She's like you don't want to stop eating "treats" (human kind) you shouldn't let them not have special treats either. Which I'm a bit conflicted as I know it's not the best for them but as a person who doesn't buy high end brands why wouldn't I want them to have a treat.
Okay but I bought a box of biscuits about 3 weeks ago and these are the ingredients: Pea Flour, Ground Flaxseed, Tapioca Starch, Chickpea Flour, Peanut Butter, Apples, Expeller Pressed Canola Oil, Mixed Tocopherols (Natural Preservative) I just looked up tapioca flour and apparently its slightly sweet. But it doesn't say "sugar"
This is an example of a bag I was looking up this morning online: Chicken, Chickpeas, Dried Potatoes, Sugar, Vegetable Glycerin, Salt, Lecithin, Natural Smoke Flavor, Sorbic Acid (a preservative), Annatto (color), Citric Acid (a preservative), Mixed Tocopherols (a preservative), Rosemary Extract. It says "sugar"
So I guess my question is do they make any treats without sugar as I've just learned tapioca flour is sweet. And does it really matter? I know feel like I really shouldn't worry about it. But this is why I told myself I wanted to stay away from like Purinas bacon or "pupperoni"
Now I'm wondering why they put sugar in treats in the 1st place. I'm sure dog's don't really "need" sugar.
