What Is A Healthy Amount Of Sugar/ Sodium
Posted 04 August 2007 - 01:29 PM
when i checked the side of the box where it has the Nutrion facts it says Sodium ( which if i remember right is Salt) 340MG Sugar: 7g
But i've got several differnt packs of Muffin mixes ( like from ginger evens/ martha white and even pilsbury) and I was looking at thier nutrion facts
on a pack of
Martha White Wildberry ( artifical blueberr & Strawberry flavor) the sodium is onl 150mg and sugar is 13g
on a ginger evens blueberry muffin mix it has Sodium 300mg Sugar 14g
on a strawberry miffin mix (same brand name) its sodium 290mg Sugar:15G
on the pilsbury Cinnamon muffin mix it says
sodium 170mg sugar15 g
So what is a Safe Sodium Mg and Sugar grams?
we're planning on adding veggies, or fruits, or both Not sure yet, we've just been reading about differnt Recipies
any assitance would be appriciated

Everything I use in the recipes is either sugar free, salt free or both. I suggest you use this practice also, but the choice is yours.
Even though it does not say so in the recipes for birdie bread I would lighty grease the pan you are using. I personally do nit use a cake pan or bread tin to make my birdy bread...I prefer to just spoon a tablespoon of the dough onto a cookie sheet and adjust the cooking tome accordingly. This make serving sized birdie bread. I keep enough out for two days (regrigerated of course) and the rest in a freezer bag in the freezer. A single batch of birdy bread should last for 4 or 5 days in the fridge and 6 weeks in the freezer.

Not to mention --- regular corn meal doesn't have all those human-levels of "nutrients". Otherwise known as sugar, or salt neither we, nor our birds need!
... Still on the hunt for the Plain Birdie Bread Recipe without all of that human-"grade" junk in it....
I've narrowed it down to --- Water, Unsweetened Applesauce, Whole Eggs, Organic Corn Meal, Whole Wheat Flour, Baking Powder, Hulled Millet --- I think it had some natural honey too for a sweetener that wasn't artificial, and organic peanut butter was optional or something...
Now if only I can find the actual recipe, or remember the amounts... *Sigh*

This is a very old thread, and since it was posted, I have moved towards non-prepackaged foods simply because of my own medical condition. However, I still stand by my original post. Those birdie bread mixes should only be given as a treat and not a main diet staple. In moderation, there is nothing wrong with using the pre-packaged stuff (as I know a lot of members do use it).
Good luck with finding a recipe.
