To the surprise and delight of many pet lovers, Gourmet Nutri-Berries contain many of the same quality ingredients you find in the grocery store; succulent pineapple and papaya, sweet carrots, plump raisins and hot bell peppers, just to name a few. Each of the four Gourmet Nutri-Berries varieties — Tropical Fruit, Sunny Orchard, Garden Veggie, and El Paso — is free of artificial colors and naturally preserved. Gourmet Nutri-Berries offer the solid nutrition of Classic Nutri-Berries plus the taste and texture of real fruits, vegetables, and other flavorful ingredients.
Gourmet Nutri-Berries is the result of close collaboration with top avian nutritionists, veterinarians, and behavioral consultants to create recipes that meet the nutritional demands of birds, as well as cater to their foraging instincts. Like a pelleted diet, Gourmet Nutri-Berries are a nutritionally complete food. Unlike pellets, in which all the ingredients are ground down and formed into a pellet, the ingredients in Nutri-Berries are left mostly whole and rolled into a berry shape to offer a variety of beak and tongue sensations. They are designed to be held and pulled apart, not simply picked through like a seed mix or crumbled up in the food bowl like pellets.
The Lafeber difference is in the hulling. We hull the seed and grains and then add essential vitamins and minerals so your bird gets balanced nutrition in each bite. A seed mix might be coated with vitamin and minerals, but as soon as the bird cracks the seed, the nutrition is lost along with the empty seed hull. Gourmet Nutri-Berries are also Omega 3 & 6 Balanced, which boosts immune function and improves the quality of the skin and feathers.
