What is the difference between natural and artificial Vitamin D?

There is natural Vitamin D and artificial Vitamin D. The Vitamin D in most pellets is artificial. When taking artificial Vitamin D you need to increase the liquid intake, meaning you have to drink more which is difficult to get a parrot to do. The Vitamin D in TOP’s pellets is provided by seaweeds and alfalfa, which are natural forms of Vitamin D. From this natural form of the Vitamin D the body can absorb as much as it needs and no increased drinking is necessary and therefore no danger of kidney damage.

Feeding Guidelines:

TOP’s pellets are formulated as a complimentary diet. Feed approximately as much as your bird will consume in a day. Some days birds will eat more than others so the amount will fluctuate. Discard the remainder and feed fresh pellets each time. Consult your avian veterinarian if you have any specific diet related concerns. Although an excellent source of protein, vitamins and minerals, TOPs believe that no pellet can provide 100 percent of a bird’s nutritional needs. Please be sure to offer them vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds for a varied diet.

TOP’s products are packed in consumer grade retail bags and contain oxygen absorbers to extend shelf life for more than 12 months. This process is different than vacuum sealing so some bags may contain more natural atmospheric volume than others and may be less formed than other bags.

Why Don’t TOPs Use Soy, Peanuts or Wheat In Their Pellets? 

Here’s why TOP’s Parrot Food pellets do not contain soy, peanuts or wheat:

Soy 
Soybeans in their natural state contain large quantities of natural toxins and there is data that soy is cumulatively toxic when fed to animals. For example, The PARROT SOCIETY NEW ZEALAND claims that soy products in bird food have caused such problems as immune system breakdown, failure of organs and multiplication of the birds’ own benign bacteria.

Peanuts 
It seems that more and more birds develop allergic reactions to peanuts, so we view them as a great treat for birds that are not allergic to them, but not part of their daily diet.

Wheat 
Wheat is a common allergen and contains about 80 different components that can cause a negative reaction.

Other pellets on the market contain fillers such as corn, soy, peanuts, added minerals and added artificial vitamins. TOP’s contains only real food ingredients.

What customers say:

“My sun conure is so picky and I can never get him to eat vegetables. I wanted to get him new food, since he was eating the colorful pellets from another brand and I wanted to get him something without any dyes, so I figured I would buy a small bag of TOP’s just to see if he would eat it. He got so excited when he saw that shiny gold bag, and he loves his new pellets, and eats them right up. This might be the first time he has willingly eaten something green!”
