    Zupreem Additives?

    Does Zupreem have artificial additives? What are TOCOPHEROLS that I see on the bag?

    Well, although her site had a lot of information on that page you referred us to, it didn't answer the poster's question.

    To answer your question, Avalon, that is my preservative of choice (as opposed to BHT, BHA or ethoxyquin). Tocopherals are a light yellow liquid vitamin E. Often Vitamin E is added for its anti-oxidant properties, protecting oils and fats from oxidation. When fats and oils oxidize, they go rancid and that can make your bird very sick.

    I hope that gives you the information you were looking for.
