Tortilla chips are a snack food that is made from corn tortillas that are cut into wedges and then fried or baked. They are made from corn, vegetable oil, salt and water.
They are cut into wedges and then fried or baked.
They were first mass-produced in Los Angeles towards the end of the 1940s but originally came from Mexico and were known there as totopos or tostadas.
They can also be made of white, blue, or red corn.
So can gerbils eat tortilla chips?
No they can’t unfortunately. They are too salty for them. Gerbils cannot handle foods that have too much salt on them as they hurt their stomach’s if they eat them.
If they were to nibble one of them, they should be fine but nothing more than that as far as gerbils are concerned.
They are a food to avoid.
