The term sugar glider is somewhat of a misnomer.  They certainly glide, but they don’t really eat a lot of sweet foods in the wild.  Tree gum is one of their sustenance items in the wild, but I tasted it and it’s not naturally sweet.  However, sugar gliders do have an affinity for sweet foods and when fruits are dehydrated it brings out many of the natural sugar in a very sweet and tasty dessert.

The pineapple is an awesome combination of  sweet and tart when fresh.  In a dehydrated state the sugars really come out and it is yummy delicious sweet.  Dehydration helps to maintain a long shelf life, so they aren’t going to go bad on you any time soon. . Many are aware that this fruit is rich in vitamins. What many are not aware is that pineapple has a host of other health benefits. It has properties that help to fight against various illness and sicknesses such as sinusitis, arthritis, indigestion, infections of the stomach and intestines. It helps to ease indigestion because it is filled with proteolytic enzyme that breaks down protein thereby promoting digestion.

These diced chunks are smaller than you will find in most retail outlets and are easy for sugar gliders to handle, even to the extent of one in each paw!   But we do caution you, dried fruits are a treat or dessert item and we do not recommend that you used dehydrated fruit in lieu of fresh fruit or vegetables for their main meal.  Treats should be limited to 5% of total daily food intake.  The moisture content of fruits and veggies seems to be essential to sugar gliders as they tend not to be large water consumers.  Too many dried foods can lead to intestinal discomforts and blockages in the form of constipation.

Why are our prices cheaper than our competitors?  That’s simple.  We don’t waste a lot of money on fancy packaging.  We use a tamper resistant package with a security strip on the top.  Once you pull off that strip, it’s your basic everyday ziplock bag that you can reclose to preserve freshness.  Do you want to pay for fancy packaging with cute little pictures on the bag, or get the most for your money with all natural and nutritious treats?

Pineapple Treats contain natural Pineapple, sugar, sulphur dioxide.
