Pet food trends usually correspond to human food trends, and these new additions to pet food are no exception. Since humans are becoming more interested in superfoods, they’re looking for the same options for their pets.
These fruits and vegetables contain high amounts of phytonutrients/phytochemicals, which can benefit your pet’s wellbeing and health. They are already included in some premium foods, such as high-quality fresh and raw cat meals, and are on their way to becoming big.
So, let’s see what we can expect and how good these superfoods are for our pets.
Spinach is healthy due to being full of iron, vitamins, and minerals that your pets can benefit from, so it’s a great addition to pet food. But, keep in mind that spinach can be harmful to a cat with urinary problems.
Kale, broccoli, and other cruciferous vegetables are slowly finding their way into pet food. They are perfectly safe to eat for both cats and dogs, and they bring additional nutrients.
Coconut can substitute other starch options in pet food, as it’s entirely safe for both dogs and cats. It’s great for immunity, skin, and fur.
Chia is full of Omega 3 and is perfect for overweight dogs and those with diabetes. This is why we’ll probably see more of it in pet food.
Blueberries are fantastic for dogs because they are full of antioxidants and can boost their vision and general health. They are also great for cats but should be given in moderation.
Since these fruits and vegetables are healthy, loved by pet owners, and are already a part of the dog and cat food, we can expect that their use will explode this year, and we’ll be able to find it in most pet food options.
