A plantain, or cooking plantain, is one of the less sweet cultivated varieties (cultivars) of the genus Musa whose fruit is also known as a banana. Plantains are always eaten cooked, sometimes along with their leaves and fibers, and are usually large, angular and starch.
So can hamsters eat plantains?
Let’s take a look at their nutritional data and find out more.
In particular, their acidic, water, sugar, fat, calcium, salt, and phosphorus content is of most interest as far as hamsters are concerned.
As you can see, plantains contain a lot of water, acidic content, and sugar plus quite a lot of phosphorus.
This means that plantains are not good for hamsters to eat due to their high acidic and water content, and are a food to avoid.
