At first glance, Spinach may seem a good gutload choice. And it is, in small amounts from time to time. Spinach is a good source of Fiber, Protein, pro-formed Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Niacin, Zinc, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.

HOWEVER, Spinach (especially older leaves) is on all the Oxalic Acid and Goitrogenic lists. Meaning Spinach could interfere with calcium, iron and iodine absorption...

Tarragon - Artemisia dracunculus

Posted 02-21-2013 at 09:58 PM by sandrachameleon (SandraChameleon's Blog)

If your bugs will eat it, its a good option for inclusion in your gutloads.

Low oxalates.


May stimulate appetite, digestion, excretion.

Some Omega-3 fatty acids.

Good source of:
b carotene,
Vitamin C,
and Manganese.
