We don't add any vitamins or minerals to our insects or their food. While this is common practice with other feeder companies, we realize that reptiles are very susceptible to vitamin toxicity and it's impossible to gauge how much calcium or vitamins are added at home. We let the customer decide when to add vitamins and minerals as a supplement and don't add any artificially to any of our products or insects. (Google **"Vitamin A toxicity"** in reptiles to see why 'Vita' insects are a terrible idea in our opinion) It is our policy to strive to be 100% natural in our products for the health of your animals. Having said that we do only feed our insects human-grade wheat bran and carrots (we buy the same carrots local restaurants and supermarkets buy!) and ensure that your feeders are the most naturally nutritious healthy feeders on the market. If you would like to provide supplementation to your insects you can use Repashy Superload, we also sell ZooMed Repticalcium for dusting.
This is a topic that is near and dear to our hearts and we are so glad you asked!
