Roudybush Statement

The following statement was provided www.foryourbird.com by a Roudybush representative.

Reference to Ethoxyquin will be removed from Roudybush packaging ASAP.

New, All Natural Preservative

Unless a food is kept frozen until it is consumed, it undergoes changes over time that decrease its vitamin levels and oxidize fats. Excessive oxidation of fats leads to rancidity. To prevent rancidity and loss of necessary nutrients, preservatives are added to foods. These preservatives are primarily antioxidants. Until recently, the most safe and effective preservative available has been ethoxyquin. Ethoxyquin became the target of a tremendous amount of adverse publicity due to a poorly designed study of its safety in rats performed many years ago. Since that study, many more tests were conducted in rats, mice, and dogs, showing the preservative was very safe. Unfortunately, these studies did nothing to stop the already building misinformation about ethoxyquin.

Roudybush has included ethoxyquin in our formulations in the past. The quality of the food we produced was our utmost concern and until an equally safe and effective preservative was developed, we were unwilling to switch to one of the other inferior or less safe preservatives available just because people were afraid of ethoxyquin. Recently a new, all natural preservative with excellent safety and efficacy was introduced. We have replaced ethoxyquin with this new preservative in our Low-fat Maintenance, Maintenance, Breeder and High-energy Breeder pellets.

The new preservative is a combination of d-tocopherol (a close relative of vitamin E), rosemary, and citric acid. Vitamin E (a-tocopherol) has antioxidant properties, but it is also biologically active and larger concentrations needed as a preservative have not been tested for safety in birds. The advantage of d-tocopherol is that it has antioxidant properties but it has very little biological activity, so risk of toxicity is eliminated. Rosemary has natural antioxidant properties. Citric acid binds to certain minerals responsible for starting oxidation reactions, preventing those reactions from occuring.

Roudybush is committed to providing your birds with the best possible food. Any changes we make to our formulations are thoroughly researched and only made when the data shows us there is a clear advantage.
