Today, I was googling some of the ingredients in my certified organic layer pellets and came across menadione nicotinamide bisulfate. At first , I just searched menadione, and found this Natural News article... http://www.naturalnews.com/024244_food_pet_sodium.html
. It isn't exactly the same... the middle word on mine is nicotinamide and the one in the article is sodium... but it also says it goes by many names. Can anyone comment on this?
I thought I scored with this stuff. It's grown and produced locally and certified organic. It's just too bad that the USDA sets the organic rules and they really can't be fully trusted, so on occasion, we still must question ingredients, even on certified organic stuff. I'm not saying that this particular ingredient is bad... I don't know that yet and it's hard to sift through all the conflicting google results. I just don't think the USDA is properly researching all the things that they allow in organic food and I'm sure they are even more relaxed on animal feed.
I can avoid feed during summer by free ranging, but I haven't established any way to supply my own winter feed yet. So I guess I am stuck with this stuff for now.
Does anyone see any other questionable things on this ingredient list?
