    "Description: Mazuri Hi-Ca Cricket Diet is a diet formulated to contain a high level of calcium for crickets which are intended to be used in the diets of other animals. This diet is not intended for use in breeding or raising crickets."

    "When this diet is consumed, the total body calcium of the crickets is increased. The presence of this diet in the gut of the crickets results in a higher level of calcium being delivered to reptiles and other animals that eat the crickets."

    When looking at the composition of this diet, it has a calcium to phosphorous ratio of approximately 8:1. Since 1.5:1 is considered an ideal minimum, this is a good cricket diet for gut loading feeders. It is recommended to feed for 24-48 hrs before using insects for food.
