Can Hamsters Eat Triscuits?

Triscuit is a snack cracker, made by Nabisco, which takes the form of square baked whole wheat wafers.

It was invented in 1900, a patent was granted in 1902, and the Shredded Wheat Company in Niagara Falls, New York began production the next year.

Triscuit is made from wheat which is first cooked in water until it reaches about fifty percent moisture content.

It is then tempered, which is intended to allow the moisture to diffuse evenly into the grain.

The grain is then formed into shredded wheat strands by using slotted rollers.

Webs are formed from the strands and then several webs are stacked together.

The still moist stack of strands is crimped at regular intervals to produce individual crackers. The moisture content is reduced to five percent by oven baking. (source)
