Peanut Flour (20%)
Peanut granules offer a rich natural concentration of oil and protein, are a particular favourite with most garden birds and are added to help increase nutritional content of bird seed mixes. Peanut granules are safer for young birds and smaller species, unlike whole peanuts that can present a choking hazard. Peanut granules can be found in: Four Seasons, Clean Plate, Vivid Colour, In Full Song and Mealworm Mix.
Beef Fat (15%)
Peter & Paul suet products contain as much as three times the fat levels of other top brands and it’s this high suet content that provide your garden birds with all the energy they need. That said, the more concentrated and higher quality the suet is, the better it is for the birds. The industry standard for fat used in suet production is Cat 3 tallow which is classified as; a blend of animal fat by-products, and as such could include Beef, lamb, Pig or anything! Peter & Paul suet products contains only beef fat, which not only means that these products do not change composition from batch, to batch, to batch, but it also happens to be a denser form of suet and, therefore, has the highest pay back in calories per gram. To put it simply; the more fat and the better that fat is that’s in suet – the more birds you will get in your garden.
Dried Mealworms (4%)
Many birds eat insects naturally, so feeding mealworms to the birds seems like a natural thing to do. Dried Mealworms quickly attract a variety of insect-loving wild birds to your garden such as robins and thrushes. They are also a rich source of protein and fat which can be fed all the year round but by feeding during the spring, you will be ensuring that parent birds are providing their young with all the goodness they need.
Spirulina has proven to be a FANTASTIC supplement, highly beneficial for our feathered friends. Spirulina is basically an edible blue-green micro algae that naturally grows in the lakes. It constitutes about 72% protein, astonishing 0.5% of beta-carotene and is the richest source of the B 12 vitamin. This ocean of nutrients has VERY interesting effects on birds. Spirulina makes their plumage glossier, it intensifies their natural colour, improves their health by increasing their metabolic rate, protecting their kidneys and improving their digestive tract flora, it has been shown to have anti-cancer and anti-viral effects and also increases their fertility many folds. Studies have shown that when the birds are fed Spirulina rich diets, they showed a great improvement in their fertility – up to 96%! Basically, it is wonderful!

Birds have a very different breathing system than us mammals. The air flow only goes one way, so as they ‘breathe out’ new air automatically enters the lungs. This means that any dust in the air can cause discomfort or illness. Peter&Paul seeds are dust extracted before mixing and tested for dust during the mixing process. How dusty is your bird food?
