parrot pellets

Over the last  year the number of our customers increased, who voiced that they love TOP pellets, but would be happy if we could remove the corn. They were concerned about allergies. During the same time period, mycotoxins seemed to become more and more of an issue. Though, corn is a good source of fiber, folate, vitamins B and C and potassium, it is also the second most prevalent ingredient in foods processed in the US today. Not only in human food, but in parrot food too. At the same time corn allergies seem to become more common; in humans and in parrots. It looks like corn is one of the foods which, when eaten daily, can trigger allergies.

After researching this issue for a while and consulting with nutritionists, we decided to change the TOP pellets formula and replace the corn with a higher amount rice, millet and alfalfa. To be able to sell our pellets in all states we took the amaranth out. In some states amaranth is not allowed in pet food. We also replaced the barley grass and wheat grass powder with nettle leafs and kelp.

 And here is the new recipe of the organic TOP Pellets:

Rice, hulled millet, barley, alfalfa leafs, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, quinoa, buckwheat, dandelion leaf, nettle leaf, carrot powder, spinach powder, purple dulse, kelp, rose hips (powder and crushed leafs), orange and lemon peel powder, rosemary, cayenne, red chilli.
Crude Protein min 13.02%, Crude Fiber min 12%, Fat min 7%.

 Our birds here love the new formula. We hope yours will too. Oh, one of our trial customers said that the pellets taste great.
