As you can see, kohlrabi contains a huge amount of water, quite a lot of phosphorus and acidic content, a hint of calcium, a hint of fat and a little sugar.

This means that unfortunately, hamsters cannot eat kohlrabi. Its huge amount of water content means that they may get diarrhea if they eat it, so is a food that is best avoided.
