Currants are otherwise called Zante currants, Corinth raisins, or Corinthian raisins, and are dried berries of the small, sweet, seedless grape cultivar ‘Black Corinth’.
They are regularly eaten in all kinds of culinary dishes around the world.
So can gerbils eat currants at all?
Let’s take a look at their nutritional data and find out more.
In particular, we are interested in their acidic, water, sugar, fat, salt, calcium, and phosphorus content as far as gerbils are concerned.
As you can see currants contain a lot of phosphorus, calcium, and sugar plus a hint of fat.
This means they are not a great food for gerbils to eat at all.
One or two very occasionally wont hurt but they shouldn’t be fed regularly to gerbils. They will absolutely love them and will eat as many as you give them so take care with how many you feed them.
