Pinkie rats as a food

Postby kingofnobbys » Sat Feb 09, 2019 10:50 pm

Regarding using pinkie rats :

For those who are not scientists , if Ash = 12% and % Ca is 1.85% ==> Ca content of animals as assayed is = 0.12 x 0.0185 ==> 0.222 % Ca

Small size fat content between 24% - 28% fat & similar issues of strong risk of bacterial contamination with frozen then thawed pinkie rats as with mice . Not good.
