Protein Booster with Superfoods
This 28 ounce protein booster with superfoods is designed to be added to any seed mix to increase the protein of the mix. We start with a deluxe, high quality mix, offering 16% protein, and then we add hemp seeds (32% protein) and mung beans (24% protein) to boost the protein level to 18%. Green peas and safflower seeds enhance the taste and fat content of the booster. The real stars of this supplement are hemp seeds and mung beans. Both are widely considered to be “superfoods” by humans and pigeons alike. Hemp seeds are a complete source of protein (that is, they contain all 9 amino acids), are rich in omega-3’s and omega-6’s, contain an impressive array of vitamins and minerals, and have gamma linolenic acid (“GLA”), which is a potent anti-inflammatory. Similarly, mung beans are high in important vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber and are an excellent source of antioxidants.
