Can Hamsters Eat Boiled Corn?

Boiled corn is sweetcorn that has been boiled in water up to a certain temperature in order to cook it.

Sweet corn is the result of a naturally occurring recessive mutation in the genes which control conversion of sugar to starch.

This is inside the endosperm of the corn kernel.

It is a popular food to eat and eaten either as part of a cob or as loose kernels.

Boiled corn is usually purchased from grocery stores as corn on the cob or indeed in canned varieties.

So can hamsters eat boiled corn?

Yes they can in small amounts in moderation. They will enjoy it.

However, it is quite acidic and so too much of it is not entirely good for them.
