Mazuri® Enrichment Gel is not a complete diet for primates and should not be used at >10% of the diet (as fed).
Mix, by weight, 50% boiling (>180°F) water to 50% Mazuri® Enrichment Gel Berry.
If this is used as a carrier for medication, water as cool as 100°F can be used by increasing the mixing time to 3 minutes (a weaker gel will be produced, which may be desirable depending on the medication).
Mix thoroughly with a spoon, fork or whisk for at least one minute, then pour into a shallow pan and allow to cool. Refrigerate until firm.
Cut into pieces appropriately sized for the animals being fed.
Mazuri® Enrichment Gel Berry has a 1-year shelf life in the dry powder form when stored in a dry environment. For best results, tightly affix canister lid or store contents of the open bag in container with a sealing lid. Store in a cool (75°F or colder), dry (approximately 50% RH) location. The mixed product should be stored under refrigeration for no longer than 7 days. The mixed product can be frozen for 30 days. Repeated thawing of the prepared product is discouraged.
