Sweet potato is an edible tropical tuber with pinkish orange, slightly sweet flesh.
So can hamsters eat sweet potatoes?
Let’s take a look at their nutritional data and find out more.
In particular, their acidic, water, sugar, fat, salt, phosphorus, and calcium content is of most interest as far as hamsters are concerned.
As you can see, sweet potato contains quite a bit of phosphorus, a little calcium and sugar, and a huge amount of acidic content.
This means that it is not a good food for hamsters to eat and should be avoided if possible. There is just too much acidic content for them to handle.
