Gut loading with juicing left overs?


Established Member
Random question.... I juice often and left over is the vegetable fibers,peels, etc..... they are still high in many nutrients.. is it safe/ okay to gutload my crickets with this? Added a photo for explaination. It’s mostly carrots, spinach, apples, celery and trace amounts of ginger and beets

Done it for years. We have a juicer at work, so i get to take all the pulp home. The key is to spread it out, it ferments/goes bad just as quick as a bruised banana/apple, so either swap out plates daily, or spread it out so it dries out.

Thanks for the heads up! It’s a good way to reuse food that would otherwise be thrown but I’ll only gutload when it’s food that’s good for Chams!
