This comes from the friend of a loyal customer:
I can buy the ingredients at my local market for $2.50 a pound … why should I buy your product for $13.95 a pound?
Thanks for your great questions. Let me explain.
Yes, anyone can pick up ingredients and throw together a hodgepodge mix of their own sprouting blend however the birds eating this will be missing out. Here’s why:
1. Firstly, Leslie has formulated her sprouting blends to provide compete protein. In the nutritional work she is doing with her clients, and with her own birds, she is seeing that providing birds a high quality, nutrient dense, source of complete protein is vital for supporting a bird’s natural healing process and their immune system.
The Best Bird Food Ever! provides ‘complete protein’ because it has been formulated so that a specific amount of each ingredient is added. And each ingredient contains key amino acids in specific proportions. Once the blend has been mixed the totals of the amino acids, that make up complete protein, match the amino acid array that has been determined to provide complete protein.
2. There is no such thing as a ‘compete protein food’. In Leslie’s monthly column, ‘The Holistic Parrot’, in Parrots magazine, the December 2013, # 191 issue, she blows the doors off our belief system regarding which foods contain complete protein. Instead of uncovering vegetable based complete protein foods, when Leslie began comparing the amino acid values for select foods, she discovered that foods we have been told for decades contained complete protein, such as eggs, fish, chicken, meats, actually do not. You’ve got to read this full article for all the details.
Because there is no such thing a s a complete protein food, buying and feeding the Best Bird Food Ever! complete protein sprouting blends just became even more important.
