Can my ducks eat this?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!

So I need some quick and probably easy help.

My family eats pretty organic and whole food so usually pretty easy to figure out if it's okay for my ducks.

I made homemade ketchup last night and it doesn't keep very long. There are tons of tomatoes in it so I really want my ducks to be able to help us finish it. However, there's trace amounts of cane sugar in it and a small amount of vinegar. I've heard sugar is a no go for ducks. Is a small amount hurtful? It's just so sad to me there's so many yummy tomatoes here and yeaaaa lol.

Maybe someone can tell me what they think?

Do you add sugar to your ketchup? If so, I'd avoid giving it to the ducks.

Is it just cane sugar?

I've been trying to research all day. I know some sugar refineries use beets. They can't eat beets? Hmm... There's just fighting information everywhere it's hard to tell the good from the bad.

I wouldn't give it to them personally.
