Nutrients

Nutrients are molecules found in the food we feed to our ferrets. They are the building blocks of all living organisms and our ferrets need them in order to make energy, grow, develop and reproduce.

The nutrients obtained from food are digested and then broken down into basic parts before being utilized by the body.  Nutrients can be grouped into two types, Macro and Micro nutrients.
Macronutrients include carbohydrate, protein, and fat.
