Column: Coconut’s super powers

0

Over the past few years, coconut has skyrocketed in popularity for human and, now, pet consumption.

“Coconut is one of the few foods that can be classified as a ‘super food,’” Chanda D. Leary-Coutu, senior manager of marketing communications at WellPet, said.

What is a super food? Though it isn’t a regulated term, foods that are nutrient-dense and have a positive impact on overall wellness are labeled as a super food.

As an ingredient in pet food and treats, coconut is used in dozens of ways, from its rawest form to an added element within a complex formula. It frequently appears as coconut oil or coconut flour in many formulations.

One popular coconut product is virgin coconut oil.

Coconut is extremely beneficial for pets because it is one of the richest natural sources of medium chain triglycerides. The most abundant medium-chain fatty acid found in coconut oil is lauric acid, which is considered responsible for many of coconut oil’s health benefits. Coconut oil is about 50 percent lauric acid, and the only other abundant source found in nature is in human breast milk.

Be sure to check with your local pet supply store for sources of coconut for your best friend.

Karma and I would like to warn everyone it is summer, do not leave your dog in the car, or your child. It just takes a few minutes for the car to become unbearably hot, even with the windows cracked. Just don’t do it. If I see a dog or child in a hot car and I can’t find the owner, I will most likely break your window, so watch out.
