Exotic Nutrition’s Fresh Feeders provide conveniently packaged moist insects that are sterilized (cooked), and then sealed into six individual pouches, which lock in flavor and freshness for easy feeding. Insects can be offered to animals using the included feeding tweezers, and pouches can be resealed with the included bag clip. These farm-raised, all-natural insects are non-GMO, have zero growth hormones and contain no preservatives. The cooking process softens the exoskeleton of the insect and breaks the bonds between the collagen protein, making it absorbable by a pet’s digestive tract. The collagen protein is an important fiber that aids in building bone, cartilage, skin and nail structures, the company reports.
