Grapes are berries which are typically green, red, purple, or black and grow in clusters on a grapevine. They are eaten as a fruit and are also used to make wine, jam, juice, jelly, grape seed extract, raisins, vinegar, and grape seed oil.
They are a great favorite throughout the world as a snack and a flavoring and are often used in many different ways.
So can gerbils eat grapes at all?
Let’s take a look at their nutritional data and find out more.
In particular, their water, acidic, fat, calcium, sugar, salt and phosphorus content is of most interest as far as gerbils are concerned.
As you can see grapes contain a lot of sugar and acidic content plus a little phosphorus.
