The problem I see with all of them is the oils, and the natural flavors(MSG). Sunflower and canola oils are not good for the body because they contain more omega 6 than omega 3, which can cause obesity. The second one doesn't even list what type of vegetable oil it uses, so I'm a skeptic with that one. The second one is a concern because it contains a lot of sugar. Not only is sugar the second ingredient, it also has partially inverted sugar syrup, and barley malt extract.
In the first one there are far too many fillers. It's as if they added the arrowroot flower, then threw in as many different types of flower they could to increase the quantity, and not really the quality.
I say if you have to get any of them, the last is the best because of the type of sugar they use and the limited amount of ingredients. I like that they used unrefined cane juice and unsulphured molasses. Those are more natural and healthy alternatives to sugar because they're more easily digested by the body.

First - find out if the "Arrowroot Biscuits" you are looking for are actually a human "cookie". The reference may have been to a product available in Australia specifically made for animals, similar to "Monkey Biscuits".

Any comparison of ingredients should be made to the ingredients in the product they actually use.

I am sure there are hundreds of "arrowroot cookie" products available - more specific information is needed.

Sorry Candy, I replied on the orignal HPW thread to that question.

But here is the link Alden provided for the arrowroot cookies....

They are human grade and from what I can gather these particular ones are shipped in from overseas which is why they are so expensive.
