Organic Beet Powder

Organic beet powder is made from ripe organic red beets that are cooked, peeled, sliced, dried, and ground.  It is a natural food coloring and used in our red "Veggie Parm" treats to give them that extra pop in color.

Red beets contain a pigment called betalain which causes its red color.  The health benefits of beets include fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K, and are rich in iron, potassium and niacin.  Beet powder is also known as a great herb to help build the liver.

The only drawback is it may cause tear stains in dogs with white fur.  If you have a dog that fits this description you will have to see if this is the case on an individual basis, however; given every now and then should not be a problem. 

As a result we are offering a version of our "Veggie Parm" treats without beet powder to accommodate our fair fur friends.  If this is something you are interested in let us know.  The color won't be as vibrant but they will be equally delicious!
