Meet, Akanksha .D. Gilhotra, Entrepreneur and Head Chef at Tail Twisters who came up with this wonderful concept of sugar-free and gluten-free baking mixes and quick healthy meals much to the relief of pet parents and their beloved pet dogs! Tail Twister offers a variety of fun and delicious cake recipes.
NewsOnPets interviewed Akanksha .D. Gilhotra to know all about ‘Tail Twisters’.
1. What Inspired You to Start with the Tail Twisters?
We couldn’t supply our cakes to other parts of the country. Moreover dog cakes these days are too expensive which a lot of people couldn’t afford so in order to show their love for their babies they tried baking it themselves but somehow didn’t work for them and most of them wouldn’t even try due to the hassle , so we thought of solving the problem and creating ready mixes where they just need to add water and bake, we even provide icing with the pack to make it convenient for them. We have recently launched THE MEAL, which is again a ready-to-eat meal for dogs, no hassle of cooking healthy homemade food. Pet parents can just add hot water, leave it for 15 min and serve.
Also, ‘Tail Twisters’ is so much more than running a business. It’s a chance to connect with dogs and a community of dog lovers, to spread joy, and to build a healthy life we all love for our pets.
2. What is the Range of Currently Available with You When It Comes to Baking Items?
We have Cake Mixes( 4 flavours: Classic, Red Velvet, Blueberry, and Carob ) & Cookie mixes(2 flavours: Carob and Cheese & Berry Blast).
3. Why Sugar-free and Gluten-free Baking Mixes and Frostings?
Sugar is not good for dogs, so there are no artificial sweeteners also in the product, there is only simple sugar i.e natural sugar that is present in fruits.
We use all-natural, human-grade ingredients including whole wheat flour or rice flour, peanut flour, natural banana flavor, carob powder, buckwheat, beet powder, evaporated cane juice, salt, and yogurt powder. Gluten-free options are available as most of the dogs are gluten celiac.
4. Are You Planning to Widen the Range to Bake Items for Cats Too?
Yes, we are.
5. What are the Nutrients that Are Needed for Baked Products for Dogs?
Many brands of commercial dog treats are filled with preservatives, which help to extend their shelf life. In addition, store-bought treats are often made from fillers and byproducts and are high in fat, sugar, chemicals as opposed to natural and high-quality ingredients. By creating your own treats at home, you will be able to provide your dog with a healthy snack that is not only nutritious but is also free of unhealthy additives.
The next time you wish to feed your pooch healthy food, order from Tail Twisters. It is worth the try!
NewsOnPets wishes Akanksha D. Gilhotra and the entire Tail Twisters team a happy and a successful journey ahead.
We are a bunch of writers and artists who also happen to be pet parents and love animals, birds, reptiles and anything that ain’t human. Well, we respect humans who respect every other being. If you are one of them, we’d love to hear from ya!
