 Rice Flour

Rice flour may be made from either white rice or brown rice. To make the flour, the husk of rice or paddy is removed and raw rice is obtained. The raw rice is then ground to flour. Rice flour is a particularly good substitute for wheat flour, which some dogs are allergic to. We chose this alternative to eliminate wheat, soy, and corn allergies.

 Garbanzo Bean Four

Made from chickpeas (garbanzo beans) ground into a flour, this is another great substitute for wheat flour. It is high in protein and provides a good source of carbs and fiber. This flour is used in many of our Mediterranean recipes.

 Canola Oil 

Once harvested, canola seeds are crushed and the oil contained within the seed is extracted. The average canola seed is 45% oil. It has the least saturated fat of any common cooking oil. In fact, it has less than half the saturated fat of olive or soybean oil. The US Food and Drug Administration authorized a qualified health claim for canola oil's ability to reduce the risk of heart disease when used in place of saturated fat.

 Peanut Flour

Used in peanut butter flavored treats this is the most popular flavor for dogs. All natural with no additives this flour is made from grounding roasted peanuts into a fine powdery mixture.

A safe alternative to one of the most forbidden ingredients to dogs, chocolate. It comes in a chip or powder form and is mostly used in treats for decorative coating, to mimic chocolate chips or brownies.

 Pumpkin

The health benefits of pumpkin are well-known, though most people do not think of pumpkin as a health food. Perhaps this is because most of us think of pumpkin pie, which is a high-calorie treat--but it might be one of the healthier desserts we could choose. Pumpkin is loaded with vitamins C, K and E, beta-carotene, fiber, and several other beneficial antioxidants and other phytonutrients like lutein and ziazanthin. Most dogs love it, which makes giving them added fiber not only convenient but even enjoyable. And often cats will like pumpkin, too. Trying to get a cat to take fiber in any other form can be very frustrating. Pumpkin is loaded with other nutrients as well, though perhaps less useful for our pets than for us. Still, aren't harmful and could be beneficial.

 Cranberries

Cranberries are rich in antioxidants called bio-flavonoids which help to enhance the immune system, protect us from toxins and encourage a healthy heart. In addition, cranberries are rich in vitamins and minerals. Cranberries are also known to help lower urine pH in both dogs and cats, as they contain substances that discourage bacteria from adhering to the wall of the urinary bladder, thus helping to helping to prevent infection within the urinary system. In addition to suppressing infection, cranberries are also known reduce the incidence of bladder stones in dogs and Idiopathic Interstitial Cystitis in cats, both of which are far too common a problem within the pet population today. More recent research suggests that cranberries may also offer oral health benefits by removing harmful bacteria from the teeth, slowing the formation of plaque and reducing the incidence of gum disease.
