Teklad natural ingredient diets are comprised of agricultural commodities including (but not limited to):
- Corn gluten meal
- Wheat and wheat middlings
- Soybean meal*
- Alfalfa meal*
- Animal-derived ingredients such as fish meal, and meat and bone meal*
- Vitamins, minerals and fat (vegetable oil or animal fat)
*These ingredients are reduced or excluded in Teklad Global Rodent Diets because they can have effects on a wide variety of research end points.
All natural ingredients have complex chemical composition that can naturally vary. Fixed formulation combined with stringent ingredient procurement help to minimize this natural variation. When further diet refinement is required contact a nutritionist to determine if a custom diet would better suit your needs.
