Product Description

Please feel free to contact us for recommendations on what size or type of treat might be a good choice for your specific companion bird - as well as how much to offer your bird at any one time.

Organic Human Consumption Grade Dehydrated Papaya Cubes: All of the Dried Fruits we offer contain NO Sulfides!

The above price is for 1/4 Pound. This are the highest quality Papaya Cubes we can find! They are an excellent treat (when given in moderation) that most species of birds love! They are pictured at right next to a quarter for size comparison.

Papaya is an excellent source of Vitamin A and has 2000 IU Per 100 Grams! It is also a source of of Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Folate and Vitamin E.

General Information about Papaya:
This is a juicy peach-like tropical fruit valued for its powerful digestive enzyme called papain and the high beta carotene content which is readily convertible to useable Vitamin A. Parrots seem to consider papaya a natural part of their diet, and depending on the bird's country of origin, sometimes it is!
Unless our parrots are able to digest their food properly, all our good feeding intentions and efforts are wasted. Proper digestion is a requirement not only for their optimum health but we also must consider that incomplete or disordered digestion can be a major contributor to the development of disease. The problem is not only that ingestion of foods and nutritional substances are of little benefit when breakdown and assimilation are inadequate, but also that incompletely digested food molecules can be inappropriately absorbed into the systemic circulation!
Papaya is an enzyme-rich food that we would do well to offer our birds daily (a cube or two), in order to help them assimilate the most nutrients from their diet.
