High fat content – this allows the product to stay softer during the winter but highly palatable during the summer months.
High calorific value – they now provide birds with more energy.
Higher fibre content -this is due to the inclusion of quality seeds such as red sorghum and whole sunflower seeds both of which are highly nutritious and as proven in trials seemingly loved by garden birds.
Low levels of calcium – this increases palatability.
Use of maize flour – this gives a distinctive yellow colour which allows the fat balls to be differentiated but it is also very healthy as it contains Vitamin B6, helping birds to break down the food to get energy so it is also an essential part of the bird’s diet.
Source of antioxidant carotenoids – such as lutein and zeaxanthin.
