Although there are said to be no known hazards with Pink Purslane, it comes from a family where most of the plants contain high levels of oxalic acid, and this is also true of Pink Purslane.  Oxalic acid binds with calcium and prevents the animal from absorbing it, and so we advise caution and feeding in moderation only, and as part of a wider, varied diet.  See also Miner's Lettuce.
