Rabbit is lean striated muscle from vegetarian-fed rabbits bred specifically for meat production, much like chickens or cattle. This unique protein can be a healthy and palatable alternative to common proteins.
Rabbit hearts are a striated, nutrient-rich muscle meat and are a good source of thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, Vitamin B6, phosphorus, iron, zinc, and importantly taurine.
Rabbit liver is a nutrient-rich organ meat, and is a good source of protein, Vitamin A, and other vitamins and minerals. The liver is a multi-faceted organ and while it does participate in detoxification of the body, these toxins do not build up in the liver tissue– they are voided. As a result, liver is safe to consume in appropriate quantities.
Rabbit lungs are a beneficial organ that supply needed amino acids.
Rabbit meal is the lean striated muscle from vegetarian-fed rabbits (bred specifically for meat production) with the moisture removed. Our high quality rabbit meal is an excellent source of highly digestible, rich meat protein. High quality, protein specific meals are simply a dried and more concentrated form of the meat, poultry or fish protein. It is important to make sure the meal is protein specific (Beef Meal, Lamb Meal), and not generic like Meat Meal or By-Product Meal which by definition can contain any species of animal.
Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) is a water-soluble vitamin. Vitamin B2 is essential for the normal release of energy from carbohydrate, protein and fat in food. It is important for normal growth and development, the production of and regulation of certain hormones, and eye pigment formation. It is a critical component in flavoprotein co-enzymes, the molecules that help make energy for cells. Low levels can lead to dermatitis, eye lesions, and poor growth.
Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is an evergreen shrub native to the Mediterranean region and highly sought after for its culinary uses.
