Treat Your Dog Healthy with Three Dog Bakery Carob Treats
What animal doesn’t love chocolate? Most humans do, and if their dogs could speak they would say, “chocolate for me too, please!” Chocolate has that amazing smell and texture, but it also contains theobromine and caffeine, which is deadly to non-human animals. So what to do when you love chocolate and want to share some with your furry friend? At Three Dog Bakery, it was easy for our chefs to find a replacement with the same flavor and feel after being introduced to Carob.
Carob powder comes from the pod of the Carob tree that grows along the Mediterranean Sea. This pod contains a sweet, edible pulp. Once dried and roasted, the pulp is ground into a powder called carob flour or carob powder. Similar to cocoa powder, it can be substituted one-for-one in recipes. Therefore, our chefs have dug up their favorite recipes and have hand crafted the perfect carob creations for your pets.
Whether your dog is a seasoned carob lover, or has yet to give carob a try, they're in for a yummy treat. Our Carob Dipped Biscuits and our Classic Crèmes are loaded with carob that is naturally sweet, mild, and packed with pectin, a soluble fiber. Traditionally, it was used to soothe an upset stomach.
Humans have been utilizing carob fruit for medicine and in foods for centuries. Unlike chocolate, carob is naturally sweet, low in fat, high in fiber, has calcium, and most importantly, lacks toxic levels of theobromine or caffeine. As you can see, carob definitely has its advantages.
We love to watch our dogs enjoy our favorite foods. Make Three Dog Bakery carob treats a part of treating your dog healthy every day!
