Hey just wondering?
Would applesauce be okay to feed Hedgie? I read the fruit and veggie list as well as the canned foods.
Was just wondering. As well. Canned corn?

Organic apples, organic cinnamon, ascorbic acid.

I'm guessing it's not okay because it's ascorbic acid huh?

ascorbic acid is just vitamin c it should be ok, im intrigued as to how it could be apple-mango with no mango in it.
Interesting, yes?

If it's just apples, cinnamon and ascorbic acid, it's fine.

I'm not keen on mango for hedgehogs just because I also keep rats. Male rats can't have mango because of the d-limonene in the skin. It causes cancer. Since there aren't any studies being done on hedgehogs, I err on the side of caution with things like this. Of course, YMMV.
