Why Should you Opt for Certified Organic Food for Birds

Birds, particularly parrots are well known to be sensitive to environmental toxins, such as certain metals, chemical cleaners, and overheated plastic-coated cookware. Chemicals that normally are only irritating to humans and other animals can be extremely toxic to birds. Yet little thought is given to the potential cancers, neurological problems, hormonal imbalances, allergies and disruptions of their fragile immune systems that may be attributed directly to pesticide residues on foods that birds ingest or to the inherent dangers of commonly used pet food preservatives such as Ethoxyquin.

In such situations, organic is the answer. Opting for organic foods is an effectual choice for birds and planetary health. Buying organically grown food, free of harmful chemicals, bursting with more nutrition, taste, and sustainable sustenance is a direct vote for immediate health and the hopeful future for bird generations to come.

According to Namit Bedwa- Companion sales manager at Eurovets, “Feeding pet birds’ certified organic foods is the best way to avoid the cocktail of chemical poisons present in commercially grown food. Organically grown foods have more nutrients, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and micronutrients—because the soil is managed and nourished with sustainable practices by responsible standards. This is not only good for the health of birds, but also the ecosystem.”

Mr. Bedwa recommends using Harrison’s certified organic foods, as they are sourced from high level and certified organic farms. They do not use any artificial processing nor do they use bleached flours, meals or byproducts that yield a perfectly uniform appearance. It is nature itself that dictates the color, look and texture of Harrison’s Bird Foods, so the appearance of the food may fluctuate from bag to bag.

 

That is not all. Harrison’s bird food has several other benefits, including –

  • No foods to clean and chop
  • No time needed to prepare – just pour and go
  • Less volume of food needed
  • No seed hulls, kitchen mess or cage mess
  • No fuss, no worry

 

In today’s market people use the terms ‘all natural,’ ‘organic’ and ‘certified organic’ interchangeably, when there really is a significant difference. Only “certified organic” has been approved by an accredited 3rd party agency after a thorough study of the entire process of growing the ingredients and manufacturing the final product to ensure that all steps have been performed within the strict guidelines. Harrison’s not only follow these strict guidelines, but also has some high standards of its own to ensure the very best quality product for your bird.
