How do you ensure that the product with Molasses doesn’t end up in the Plain bag?
We source our Beet Pulp Pellets Plain from separate suppliers than our Beet Pulp Pellets with Molasses. Additionally, these pellets are packaged in separate facilities which further eliminates any concern about product mix up or molasses contamination. Our Beet Pulp Shred products arrive bagged from our supplier.
Why is there colour variance from my last order?
How the pulp is processed can cause colour variance. Since we pull our product from multiple locations throughout the year, the different drying methods from each location can cause variation to the colour, odour and soak time (up to 24hrs).
