best food on the market for hamsters

I have been keeping Syrian Hamsters for 30 years and was looking for a healthier hamster food to prevent illness. I work part-time at a pet store and see a lot of hamsters get sick due to improper diet. In researching hamster nutrition the best information I was able to find came from scientists and veterinarians. Dr. Sue Pounds, DVM said “They are omnivores but should be fed a good pelleted rodent diet containing 16% protein and only 4-5% fat. If the protein is too low, they will lose their hair. If the fat is too high (over 7-9%) they will die.” I also read that the fiber should also be about 12% and this is the best food that I was able to find in all of the U.S., Canada and Europe. The ingredients are also the healthiest and most similar to hamsters’ natural diet as well.
