About Glider Diets
In the wild, Gliders are omnivores feeding on  plant secretions such as gum and sap, nectar and pollen from flowers, as well as insects and invertebrates. They obtain most of their  energy from plant sources and can digest both  simple sugars from nectar as well as complex  carbohydrates from gums. Studies show that the natural diet of Sugar  Gliders may contain up to 50% acacia and eucalypt gums, depending on seasonal  availability. It is thought that the soluble fibre in gums is digested by microbes in the caecum of the Sugar Glider. Gliders obtain most of their protein from insects and pollen and these items are actively selected in the  breeding season to meet increased protein requirements for reproduction. Captive diets are usually high in readily digestible carbohydrates (sugar & starch), but often lack the soluble fibre found in the wild diet.

Benefits of Glider Nectar
Nutritionally Balanced – Provides a  full range of vitamins, minerals and  essential nutrients in line with  published guidelines for Sugar Gliders  (Dierenfeld & Whitehouse-Tedd, 2018).
Soluble Fibre – Contains acacia gum  and pectin as sources of soluble fibre to improve gut health and faecal consistency.
Prebiotics – Inulin and Actigen®  prebiotics to help promote healthy  gut bacteria.
