Use High Protein Supplement to boost the protein content in the diet of fruit, nectar and sap-eating animals . Disperse dry powder over fruit & veg or make up as a liquid-mix to add to food.

Directions for Use

Fruit-mix: Disperse 15g (2 level scoops) of powder per 150g of fruit or vegetables.

Mix powder well with diced or pureed fruits and vegetables. A small amount of water may be added to moisten the mix. Prepare fresh daily.

Liquid-mix: add 15g (2 level scoops) of powder to 40mL of warm water.

Mix powder well with the water. Pour liquid-mix over dry foods including semi-moist fruits, nuts, biscuits, pellets or kibble. Use at the rate of 10ml of liquid-mix per 25g of dried food. Store liquid-mix refrigerated for a day or frozen for upto 2 weeks.

Frugivorous (Fruit-eating) Animals

Fruit may represent a large proportion of the diet for some animals and birds. In captivity, animals are usually fed commercially grown fruits (e.g. apples & pears), which have a lower protein, vitamin & mineral content compared to many wild native fruits. Fruits should therefore be supplemented as per the fruit-mix directions in order to provide a balanced diet.

Possums & Gliders

For species that eat fruit & vegetables in captivity, feed as per the fruit-mix directions. For animals offered dry or semi-moist foods, feed as per the liquid-mix directions. For insectivorous species (e.g. Sugar Gliders, Pygmy Possums) also include up to 20% of prepared Small Carnivore Food plus a variety of insects in their diet.

Flying Foxes

Disperse 10g (1½ scoops) of powder over 300g of fresh cut apple per adult animal. Increase the amount to 20g (3 scoops) per animal when feeding pregnant or nursing females, juveniles and debilitated animals.

Other Uses

High Protein Supplement can be substituted for the high protein baby cereal used in many food recipes for animals and birds. Use only half the quanity of High Protein Supplement because of its superior protein quality and quantity.
