    So to answer your question, I don't see ethoxuquin in there and I don't think it should as it's slightly toxic to fish. I will contact Allan Repashy and ask. Thanks

    Excellent, Pat. I don't like the use of ethoxyquin either, but try finding commerical fishfood with fish meal or krill w/o it!

    Looks fine. I'm sure he wouldn't add those . Lower quality foods use them. Looks like a high quality product.
    I'll be growing out some baby discus with it and see how the growth goes.

    What are Tocopherols?

    In general, foods will spoil without some form of temperature control or preservatives. While many manufacturers in the commercial pet food industry still feel that less expensive but potentially carcinogenic chemical and artificial preservatives like BHA, BHT, and Ethoxyquin can be safely used to keep pet food from turning rancid, recent studies have shown otherwise.
    Despite the evidence, many commercial pet food brands, including Science Diet, Iams, Eukanuba, and Pedigree, continue to use BHA, BHT, and/or ethoxyquin to extend the shelf life and reduce fat spoilage (rancidity) of their pet foods and pet treats.

    . Vitamin E is an antioxidant that retards the oxidation of other vitamins.

    Vitamin E works as a natural preservative for a period of up to 12 months and as a peak preservative up to 6 months. Tocopherols used as preservatives in pet food do have a shorter lifespan than chemical preservatives, which can be a concern with some pet food brands that are warehoused or shipped to retail stores and left on store shelves for extended periods of time.

    So Allen got back to me. Wow, that's fast service! He said:

    Hello Pat,

    We do not add ethoxyquin to our product, we use rosemary extract and mixed tochopherols (vitamin E) as preservatives.

    That being said, all fish meal, krill meal, squid meal entering US waters must be preserved with ethoxyquin according to coast guard regulations. There is not a fish food in existence that has these ingredients that doesn't have trace amounts of this or other preservatives. Feed manufacturers are not required to list these products unless we add them directly.

    NLS actually has a great article about the whole ethoxyquin scare and does a good job of bringing the misguided fear down to earth.

    Cheers, Allen

    Wow, thanks for the super fast shipping Patrick, my soilent green arrived

    I made some up last night, pouring it into a cute little icecube tray that makes little pucks, the smell was terrible, just like I would imagine auwfuchs to smell so that's good and....

    THE FISH LOVE IT!

    It was super easy to make, I used the microwave method and my BNPs, siamese algae eaters, ruby barbs, clown loaches and cories were all on it right away! Very popular, and even the rams and dwarf parrots ate some. I'll post up some pictures later.
