Asparagus is quite a refined veggie as it is often expensive to buy, mainly because it is very labour intensive to grow.
They have a distinct intense flavour which is loved my many.
They have different colours for example French asparagus is purple, the British and American varieties are green, Spanish and much Dutch asparagus is white, as it’s grown beneath the soil and cut just as the tips emerge. (Source bbc good food)
So if we can eat it can guinea pigs eat asparagus as well, and how much can they eat?
Lets have a look at its nutritional data to get a further idea about it.
As you can see it does contain some phosphorus and oxelate, a hint of calcium, fat and sugar.
But it is high in nutrients and has reasonable levels of vitamin a and c, so guinea pigs can eat asparagus, but refrain from feeding daily. These include the asparagus stalks and tips. Once a week should suffice.
Can Guinea Pigs Eat Cooked Asparagus?
Unfortunately, cooked asparagus is not good for piggies. They cannot eat any cooked food at all, no matter how good it is for them in its raw state.
