  • Mazuri® Primate L/S gel is designed to be an essential part of a total primate feeding system and may be used in conjunction with all of the Mazuri primate products.  Gel should not be fed at more than 50% of the total diet.  Care should be taken when using supplemental dietary ingredients to ensure that nutrient recommendations are assessed.
  • Feed intake will vary based on age, body size and reproductive status.  A targeted level would be 2% to 4% food intake per kg of animal by body weight per day (dry matter basis).  This level of food intake should be achieved by feeding up to 50% Gel Diet, up to 75% of the total diet as dry Mazuri® biscuit, and plenty of fresh produce (primarily vegetables).
  • Mixing directions:
    1. Mix, by weight, 70% boiling (>180°F) water to 30% Mazuri® Primate L/S gel.
    2. 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.
    3. Cut into pieces appropriately sized for the animals being fed.
    4. Prepared gel may be fed for one week if refrigerated and may be kept frozen for up to one month.  Repeated thawing of prepared product is discouraged.
Storage Conditions
Mazuri® Primate L/S Gel Diet has a 1 year shelf life in the dry powder form when stored in a dry environment.  For best results, store contents of open bag in container with sealing lids.  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. Longer storage in the freezer will not compromise nutritional integrity, but may change physical characteristics (e.g., moisture level).
