Can Hamsters Eat Quavers?

Quavers are a British snack food, originally made by Smiths, and now produced by Walkers.

Walkers, part of the PepsiCo family, purchased the Quavers brand in 1997 where it became one of the Frito Lay International brand names.

The primary ingredient in Quavers is potato starch.

They are deep fried to give a snack with a similar texture to Krupuk (prawn crackers).

They have a different flavor and are smaller with a curled-up rectangle shape (similar in cross-section to a quaver).

Originally only available in cheese and smoky bacon flavours, the product line now contains three flavours: cheese, prawn cocktail and salt and vinegar.

Ketchup and sweet and sour flavours were also introduced, but for a limited time only and are no longer available. (source)

So can hamsters eat quavers?

They are fine for hamsters to nibble on but shouldn’t be fed purposely as a regular food for them.

This is due to the amount of salt that they contain.
