Can Hamsters Eat Apple Sauce?

Updated August 20th, 2016. Apple sauce or applesauce is a purée made of apples.

It can be made with peeled and/or unpeeled apples and a variety of spices (commonly cinnamon and allspice).

Flavorings or sweeteners such as sugar or honey are also commonly added.

Apple sauce is inexpensive and is widely used in the United Kingdom, North America and some European countries.

It has been suggested that it can substitute for fat (e.g. butter/oil) in baking.

Commercial versions of apple sauce are readily available in supermarkets.

It may be packaged in several ways, including: glass jars, tins, or plastic tubs.

It is also sold in serving-size small plastic cups. (source)

So can hamsters eat apple sauce?

No they can’t as it contains too much sugar in it for hamsters to eat and will harm them if they do eat it.

It is also not a good texture for them to eat and they may struggle with it.
