is a little more information about the use of sugar in ZuPreem products.
Sugar is added to ZuPreem FruitBlend Flavor, Natural, AvianBreeder, and
NutBlend/VeggieBlend Flavor diets. Sugars are also found in fruits that most
birds eat and enjoy in the wild. After digestion, they travel through the
bloodstream to body cells where they are used for energy, or stored for future
Veterinary nutritionists at ZuPreem have added a small amount of
sugar to our avian diets to supply readily available carbohydrate (CHO) energy,
and to make sure our nutritionally complete diets are palatable. Sugar also
adds to the enjoyment of many foods. Human and animal health experts
agree that carbohydrates, including starch and sugar, are an important part of
a balanced diet. The key is to ensure the diet is balanced between CHO’s,
proteins, and fats. Eliminating sugar and other CHO’s would result in a
very poor, unbalanced diet.

Blessings Lory food is a complete balanced diet. It was formulated in the US and fine tuned by some of the biggest Aussie & US breeders. She believes it is the best on the market now.
