It could be compared to you eating green apples, then taking a tablespoon of castor oil and a dose of salts.

Instant and thorough cleanout.

Interesting! I learned something today. Does anyone know why this is?
The pedigree of honey
Does not concern the bee;
A clover, any time, to him
Is aristocracy.

Do I know/ NO  I have been told it is the carmelization of the sugar. Whatever it is, it gives them dysentery very badly.

Give them plain dry sugar.   Easier to fix.
