It takes A LOT of time and labor to produce any seed mix that is pre-sprouted and gently dehydrated, but who except Origins Wild Diet - The BEST Bird Food would think of pre-sprouting your bird's seed mix for you? We believe in feeding seed, BUT we believe in feeding seed in its "living" form!
All of our mixes have been pre-sprouted using our proprietary "Super-Charged Sprouts™" sprouting method (no chemicals or manures used in this process), triple rinsed in 3% H2O2 to ensure they are free of bacteria and fungus, then triple-rinsed again with filtered, high alkaline water. We then gently dehydrate at or below 105 degrees F. Now you can feed your bird a Snack-elicious! seed mix with confidence knowing you are not feeding dead, dried-out seed. The seed has been sprouted to just the right size of "tail" to ensure maximum nutrition. Legumes have been properly soaked and sprouted to reduce/remove phytates and activate the digestive enzyme known as "amylase". Amylase aids in the breakdown of starches for total digestion and metabolism. If the mix includes almonds they are raw, soaked (awakened), and gently dehydrated. Our seed mixes have been carefully formulated to contain seeds, legumes, and nuts specific for large, medium, small and tiny birds!
Some amount of fruit and/or veggies have been added as species-specific ingredients.
Feed as a treat. Not intended as a complete daily diet. No need to refrigerate. Dehydrated items last about one year from the date of purchase.
NOTE: We also include sprouted milk thistle to ensure a healthy liver!
All ingredients are produced using no GMOs, no chemical fertilizers, no artificial preservatives, and no sulfites! No artificial flavorings added!
All mixes, except the Microgreen and Grain mixes, are sold in 1# packages only. We package in 1# packages to ensure the raw, original nutrition is protected until opening the next pound and remains fresh for up to one year in an unopened package. Packaged in light and air resistant packages with zip-lock closure.
Microgreen mix is sold in 2oz packages. Microgreen seed is very expensive and can be difficult to sprout.
By law, we are NOT required to provide the GA (guaranteed analysis) because we do not make any claims regarding "total and complete diet" or how any of our items can, or will improve the health of your bird(s). Those foods that do indicate the GA is only voluntary for the convenience of our customers.
