Hikari Sinking Wafers 110g

Primary ingredient is fish meal. Being a Hikari produced fish meal; we can have confidence in the nutrient and protein levels of the meal. However, not being labeled as “Whole Fish Meal” identifies that the meal is potentially compiled from leftovers after the more desirable components of the fish are used for human consumption (pending clarification from Hikari). The next preferred protein source listed is Dried Seaweed Meal, an excellent natural source of vitamins and minerals. Dried Seaweed Meal (aka Kelp Meal) qualifies as a preferred plant protein. A total of eight non-preferred protein sources are listed compared to four preferred protein sources. With wheat split into multiple products and two of the preferred protein sources (Krill Meal and Spirulina) being listed too far down the ingredient list to provide significant nutritional benefit, the preferred protein content is questionable. Dried Bakery Product is a mixture of surplus and unsalable materials collected from bakeries and other food processors. In other words, old stale bread, cakes, tortillas, pasta, cookies, candy,.etc… It is added to fish food as a source of protein and a flavor enhancer (sure give the fish a donut). Brewers Dried Yeast is a by-product of the beer making process; this ingredient contains about 45% protein and is rich in Vitamin B. Is use in fish foods is as either as a protein source or a vitamin supplement. Studies do exist indentifying its capacity to improve fish growth rates. When used as a supplement comprising between 2% and 4% of the food, this is an acceptable product. When used as a primary provider of protein comprising 25% or more of the food it is less acceptable as protein digestibility concerns have been documented.
