freeze dried vegies
Posted 26 December 2011 - 08:00 PM
Nutritional value of freeze dried foods, including fruits and vegetables, is essentially equivalent to fresh.
Has anybody had much luck feeding these to their Ekkies and saving the need for mash/etc?
I've found several sources that are pure veggies. No added preservatives, sulfites/sodium, etc.
The cost is between $.30 - $.50 per 4oz equivalent.....

Now that I think of it, there are some freeze dried carrots in Volkman's Avian Science Eclectus seed mix and I always find dried carrots in the seed dish when they have finished. My 7 Eclectus do not eat it. They don't eat the coconut either or the dried apple in the mix. I eat the bigger orange chunky things which I think are mangos.
If you can get them to eat the freeze dried stuff I guess there would be no nutritional difference. But part of eating is enjoying food and Eclectus love to eat fresh foods. Once you get in the habit of chopping fresh foods it doesn't take very long. I often chop every other day. I usually cook my grains about 3 times a month then add frozen vegetables to the grains, package and freeze. I prefer to chop and freeze the greens separately and add when serving; same with lightly cooked winter squash or sweet potatoes. I'm a sprouter so use sprouted lentils, mung and garbanzo beans instead of cooked and
