Infographic: Human Foods Your Dogs Can & Cannot Eat

Who doesn’t sneak their pets a table scrap or two during dinner?

When you’re opening a bag of chips, your dog will probably run from a room on the other side of the house. Their puppy eyes convince you to share your snack with them.

Sneaking your dog a few leftover foods may seem like a way to show your affection. However, it can also be more harmful that you’d think.

Some human foods are healthy choices that can be added to your dog’s regular diet. But, some of them are extremely dangerous for dogs that can cause illness and even death if they ingest them.

Also, your dogs can have allergies, too. In this situation, human foods might not for them. Feeding them a special diet for allergy dogs can help lower your dog’s risk of developing an allergy or manage your dog’s allergy symptoms.

Before sharing your food with your furry friends, it’s important to know that what you’re feeding them won’t harm them or necessitate an emergency visit to the vet.

Here is a detailed chart about 50+ human food your dog can and can not eat from CyberPet. If you’re not sure it’s safe for your dog, keep reading!

NutriFusion developed our GrandFusion fruit and vegetable powders because we know how important these whole foods are to our diets.

Almost 80% of Consumers Look For Products With a Fewer Ingredients

Most consumers these days think about their health and the environment whenever they are shopping. According to the Market Lifestyle of Health and Sustainability (LOHAS) of 2017, shoppers are opting for products that have fewer ingredients and clean product labels. Activities related to this include buying plant-based, non-GMO, and organic products to show support to the planet and their health.

In the same study, 8 out of 10 consumers are now conscious, about their health and opt to buy products with fewer ingredients that they can understand and pronounce. Most consumers are not afraid to ditch their old grocery stores for shops that offer products with clean labels. This resulted in the popularity of farmer’s markets and health food stores. As a result, many of retail supermarkets are now carrying clean label products to increase their market reach. Examples of these retail giants include Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods Market, Target, and Price Clubs.

Millennials Opt For Clean Labels with Simple Ingredients

consumers want fewer simple ingredientsBut who drives the whole clean label movement? In the survey, Market LOHAS noted that millennials occupy most of the pie, at about 60%, while the older generation is not so keen on the advantages of clean labels. The younger generation worries too much about the effects of using harmful ingredients in food while the older consumers stress the importance of allergy related label claims.

The thing is that more and more Millennials are health conscious because this is the generation of sick people. With the presence of fast-food restaurants and a plethora of processed junk food, it is easy for this generation to suffer from metabolic-related diseases like obesity and Type 2 diabetes.

What Drives Their Purchase

Almost 70% of Americans buy free-from food products mainly for health and nutritional reasons. In fact, personal well-being is one of the most important driving factors that push people to buy products with clean labels. There is also a growing belief that free-from foods are also linked to having a healthy planet. For instance, cage-free poultry is believed to be better for the body and the world because the animals are grown in a humane way.

Another driving factor that pushes people to buy products with clean labels is the company’s ethics. In fact, 56% of the respondents claim that they refuse to buy from a company whose products are perceived to be produced by unethical means. This has also driven companies to adhere to better policies when it comes to manufacturing their products.

Consumption of products with clean labels is not only healthy and ethical, but it is also sustainable for the environment. While more expensive, people are willing to spend extra more to be able to buy products that they believe are not only good for their health but also the environment.
