Default mazuri insectivore diet has a foul odor

I purchase Mazuri insectivore diet from my breeder and after almost a month the food has developed this cheesy hamburger type smell....pretty gross cause hedgehog food is not supposed to smell like that. i keep it sealed in a ziploc bag and this happened. has this happened to any of you guys with this brand? or is there some other reason this happened? thank you!

Hey there! I’m not too familiar with Mazuri’s insectivore diet, but we use a wide range of Mazuri products at work and keep it all either frozen (for back stock) or refrigerated. Personally, the cat food I use for Christina is left room temp and I’ve never had problems, but I’m not sure if Mazuri specific products *need* to be kept lower than room temp. This is something I’d like to research a bit further, cause I’m interested now. I encourage you to do the same! Sorry I couldn’t give you a straight forward answer.
Hope this helps 🙂

No ones going to really be able to give a proper answer as most people on here dont give their hogs hedgehog food, mostly is cat biscuit used, sometimes dog biscuit mixed in

Please don’t use that food. It is terrible quality and doesn’t have any whole ingredients.
