While I buy grain free, top shelf dog feed Kido loves her vegetables. And since I don’t always make enough at dinner for her and it makes everyone happy that she also loves duckweed!
I have to cook vegetables for her to eat, but not so with duckweed. It’s low in fiber and easy to digest.
For flavor, I’m adding a bit of coconut oil and brewers yeast
The nutrient level of duckweed is quite high (details on our website). With a protein level that can exceed 23% it is an excellent blend of amino acids plus starch.
Whats remarkable is that it takes no effort to grow. Can be grown on non-aerated water as long as it has nutrients and not too much algae. If you want to grow int in a biogarden, the duckweed is self harvesting.
Human consumption of duckweed is just around the corner, mark my words. With a little sterilization particularly when growing outdoors, it is a self replicating plant that can be raised on all varieties of liquified plant derived nutrients.
