The leaves of the white mulberry (Morus alba) are used, among other things, for breeding the silk moth and were therefore also introduced and planted in Europe in many ways during the attempt to establish a European silk production.
The untreated, dried and natural leaves from organic cultivation are an excellent addition to the diet of shrimps, crayfish and loricariids. In addition to their ideal suitability as supplementary food, they also have a creative and decorative character.
Mulberry leaves contain large amounts of minerals, dietary fibre and vitamins and can help to prevent the possibility of moulting problems. Furthermore, they also have a preventive action against bacterial diseases.
The delicate leaves are readily accepted by shrimp and crabs, as well as by bottom-living fish (e.g. Loricariids). The leaves are a welcome food change, as they are quite rich in protein for leaves, with 15 - 25 % protein in the dry matter.
We recommend that the leaves are brewed briefly before use to break down the cell structure, the leaves thus fall faster to the bottom and are consumed more rapidly.
