Exo Terra Dragon Grub Granules are a nutritious daily food for agamids, such as bearded dragons and many other insectivorous reptiles.
Extrusion is a process where friction and pressure are combined in a cooker-extruder to create extreme heat. Heat is then used to quickly cook and preserve protein and carbohydrate-containing ingredients. This process improves the supply of these nutrients to reptiles and improves digestibility and taste.
A number of nutrients are subject to deterioration when exposed to light. The 'fresh bags' prevent light from entering, maintaining the nutritional value of food at its optimum level. B vitamins, including folic acid (leafy greens) are destroyed after a week of exposure to light, ie in transparent bags. Light discolours food, promotes the deterioration of binders and prematurely activates enzymes. The 'fresh bags' also trap aromas and flavors.
The slide allows the food to be stored after opening without keeping too much air, extending the nutritional value of the food and keeping the flavor and aroma inside. All bags are CO2 washed, preventing contamination from harmful mosquitoes.
