Image Locust bean seeds
The seeds that are inside locust beans are dry and hard. They can be large enough to obstruct the small intestine of any rabbit that swallows them with fatal consequences. Although the seeds should not be in muesli mixes, sometimes they make their way in if they are still in pieces of locust bean pods. These seeds are dangerous for rabbits.

Image ECMAScript program Muesli with less flakes
This brand of muesli mix has a lot of extrusions in it but also contains a lot of flaked maize and peas. These are the palatable components that are deficient in calcium. The content and analysis if the extrusions is not supplied by the manufacturer. Whole wheat kernels have been added to the mixture and will increase the fibre analysis because of the husk. However, most rabbits leave wheat kernels uneaten.

Image text/texmacs Pellets
All muesli mixes contain pellets. These are composed of ingredients that have been ground down and compressed. The exact composition of the pellets in muesli mixes is not given. They are often a variety of sizes and colours. Pellets are cheaper to produce than extrusions. A vitamin and mineral supplement is necessary for muesli mixes in order to balance out the deficiencies in the ingredients. As the supplement is a powder, it is usually incorporated into the pellets. The pellets are the least palatable part of the mixture and is often left in the bottom of the bowl, complete with the vitamin and mineral supplement.
