Citrus Mix: Dehydrated

Citrus Mix comes in a 4oz package which is about 3 to 3.5 cups.

Citrus is very healthy for our companion birds! Not only does it contain naturally occurring Vitamin C, it is also high in many trace minerals. Trace minerals are exceptionally important in the absorption of all other nutrients! 

This delicious mix may inspire your bird to forage more often!

Please understand the classifications of veggies and fruit:

Gentle Dehydration is the method we use and our suppliers use: This is a method of dehydration that uses heat no higher than 115 degrees F and usually no lower than 105 degrees F. Dehydrating in this manner retains almost all nutrients including water and fat soluble vitamins and trace minerals.
