A diet of cooked and processed food does not contain as much nutritional value or enzymes as fresh raw foods.Sprouts: Sprouted seeds, grains, legumes and peas provide your bird with nutrient and enzyme-rich food as nature intended.
Make your own from the ingredients listed below or purchase the organic Herb and Spice Mix from me.Keep a mixed teaspoonful available in your bird’s cage, in a separate dish, and refill with a fresh spoonful once or twice weekly.Your budgie will select the ingredients it wants or needs at the time.In other words, don’t put a dish of just dry seeds in your bird’s cage and expect them to eat their vegetables, too!So if a seed-only diet is lacking in nutrition, should you feed those “complete nutrition” pelleted diets instead? Avoid processed foods whenever possible and feed “live”, enzyme-rich whole foods as nature intended.There is also a significant increase in beneficial enzymes after sprouting.
And this phenomenon isn’t limited to just wheat — ALL grains are substantially transformed by sprouting!
Research at the University of Minnesota found that sprouting increases the total nutrient density of food.
For example, sprouted whole wheat was found to have 315% more vitamin B2, 300% more vitamin C, 278% more folic acid, 111% more biotin, 66% more vitamin B3, 65% more vitamin B5, and 28% more thiamin than non-sprouted whole wheat.
Sprouting offers the opportunity to give birds the live food that they are biologically adapted to consume.
Sprouting changes and enhances the nutritional quality of vegetable proteins, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and chlorophyll.
The weighted ratio I typically aim for in the total mix is roughly 50-60% grains, 20-25% legumes (peas, beans, lentils), 8-12% herb seeds, and 8-12% oil seeds. To take a standard mass-produced birdseed mix and attempt to sprout it may be asking for trouble.
