Lafeber Co.’s Tropical Fruit Gourmet Pellets are fruit pellets made exclusively with the natural taste of fruit—no added sugar or fructose. Real pieces of papaya, mango and pineapple bring a new flavor to Lafeber’s premium pellets that were first developed by Dr. Lafeber Sr. in 1973. The pellets are produced in small batches with no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives on the Lafeber family farmland in Illinois. The pellets provide all the nutrients needed for pet birds to live full, energetic and healthy lives, the company states. Each pellet contains essential vitamins, chelated minerals, and balanced omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
