Corn as Parrot Food

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.

We find it in almost every processed food in form of Cornstarch, Corn syrup (including high-fructose corn syrup), Corn flour, Corn oil, Corn lecithin. Or corn derived ingredients like Citric Acid , Xanthan Gum and most “natural flavors”.

   This is not only the case for human food, but also for parrot food.

Like with everything our a body is inundated with, it eventually develops allergies. So 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. I like to feed fresh corn, when it is in season, but avoid it otherwise.
