The Ca : P ratio should be no less than 1.2 : 1 , and is ideally maintained from 2 : 1 up to 8 : 1 depending on the species; but competing foods contain at least one of the following poor calcium sources: corn, wheat, or soy. Corn has a Ca : P ratio of 1 : 33, wheat has a Ca : P ratio of 1 : 10, and soy has a Ca : P ratio of 1 : 2.5. Furthermore, not only are corn, wheat, and soy not beneficial, they are actually harmful to your animals. They contain oxalates and phytates, which bind to calcium, thus preventing the calcium from being utilized. JurassiDiet™ distinguishes itself from the competitors by employing a calcium rich base, alfalfa. Alfalfa has a Ca : P ratio of 6 : 1.
