This is a natural part of a Sugar Glider diet in the wild.
Oops! The Pet Pixies are flitting around trying to source more of this product!
Sugar gliders feed on the sap from acacia trees in the wild.
Acacia gum is a very important carbohydrate source and gliders are able to digest about 90% of the gum.
Gliders spend about half their time in the wild(43%) feeding on gum.
Pure Acacia Gum is harvested from the sap of these Acacia trees, processed into a powder form and packaged to be fed as part of a balanced diet. Consider the fact that Sugar Gliders in the wild do not receive most of their energy from simple sugars (nectar), but rather from starch-like, complex carbohydrates, such as acacia gum and other sources.
Therefore, the name "sugar glider" may be a somewhat of a misnomer, as "complex carbohydrate glider" might be more appropriate!
It is in powder form, ready to be sprinkled on fresh fruits or mixed with water to form a gum.
