FAQs

What is goguma, aka Korean sweet potato?

Goguma is sweet potato royalty, in our humble opinion. No other sweet potato comes close in flavor, texture, and nutrient profile. To top it off, goguma is a stunner: a vibrant reddish-purple hue on the outside (after you wash ’em off), and a golden-yellow inner flesh when roasted.

Roasted goguma tastes richer and sweeter than the orange-fleshed sweet potato you’ll find more often in the grocery store. Goguma has a dense, velvety texture and tastes pretty close to perfection on its own – no need for seasoning.

Nutritionally, goguma is rich in beta-carotene, magnesium, potassium, B vitamins, and brimming with antioxidants. Even though sweet in flavor, goguma has a low-glycemic index, which makes it a great food for diabetics.

Is it any good for my pet?

Holy cow, is it! Korean sweet potato is bursting with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants – basically all of the stuff that’s good for us humans and our dogs, too. Especially if your fur-friend is diabetic or on a low-calorie or gluten-free diet, goguma is a great treat option.

(Side note: Korean celebrities supposedly live by a diet of roasted goguma to keep them looking svelte and wrinkle-free. So adding some goguma-based treats to your pup’s life just might turn them into a Hallyu star …)

Will my pet like it or tolerate it?

We can’t say for certain, of course. Every dog is unique and has their own tastes. But so long as they don’t have specific ingredient allergies and love delicious-smelling treats, we’re confident their tails will wag for Gogoma treats!

All four dogs that have been part of our pack love Korean sweet potato. The original four-legged goguma fanatic was Lucy, a Maltese who lived to be 17 years old and was the fussiest eater you’d ever met. It was her all-time favorite snack and meal topper.

Along with Lucy, our other goguma-lovers include a Boxer, a Boxer mix, and a Boxer-Rottie mix.

What else is in Gogoma treats?

Goguma is the staple ingredient for all our treats, of course. We also include organic ground whole oats in our original recipes. We chose oats because it’s healthy, low-allergenic, and tolerated by most dogs.

Each recipe is inspired by foods we love. Every ingredient must meet high standards for taste and quality. Essentially, only stuff that’s good enough to put on our own plates goes into our treats.

Also, we never use preservatives, natural or artificial flavors, wheat, corn, or soy.

How long do these treats stay fresh?  

Since we don’t use preservatives or flavorings, your pup will enjoy the most flavor from our treats within two weeks after opening a new bag. Once a bag is opened, store them in an airtight container (like our Gogoma Treat Jar) or make sure to keep the bag sealed. 

Shelf life of unopened bags is up to one year if stored in a cool, dry place and out of direct sunlight.

Tip: You can extend the fresh flavor of Gogoma treats by popping them in the freezer. They just need a few minutes to thaw at room temp but can also be enjoyed frozen, too.

How many treats can my dog eat?

The general rule is treats should not exceed 10 percent of a dog’s daily calorie intake. Vets say you should adjust your dog's meal-time calories accordingly so he/she doesn't do over the daily limit.

We're generous with our own dogs when it comes to Gogoma treats. We feed them as snacks to power up our pre-breakfast morning walks and during long hikes. If we're on an extended daylong adventure, we like to give them a few treats to tide them over until dinnertime.  

We designed each recipe with a balance of nutrients and flavor using healthy, sustainable ingredients that are gentle on sensitive tummies. You can feel good about treating your pets to Gogoma!
