Marsupial milk changes in composition and energy as the joey develops. This is why a single milk is not suitable for hand rearing any marsupial. Different Wombaroo milks are formulated to provide the correct nutrition at different stages of joey development. The Wombaroo milk stages are related to the time that a joey has already spent in the pouch. A joey at fully out of pouch age has completed 100% of its pouch life so it has an age factor of 1. All joeys that spend any time in the pouch have an age factor of less than 1.
What is in Wombaroo?
PROTEIN is a recombination of bovine milk protein fractions to produce the right proportion of caseins and whey proteins. Essential amino acids have been fortified with extra lysine, cysteine, methionine and taurine.
CARBOHYDRATE is an easily digested maltodextrin made from the enzymatic digestion of starch. It is high in glucose and low in a-limit dextrin.
LIPID is a mix of milk fat solids, vegetable oils and fatty acid esters prepared from fish oil. These ingredients are blended to produce the right mix of saturated, mono-unsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and include the essential omega-3 fatty acids a-linolenic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
