I tried to do research on arrowroot and can't find it listed on here. Is it safe to give our suggies? Thanks again, Ann & glider crew

I remember a post about arrowroot cookies a while back. If I remember correctly, Gordon Rich with Paswell (MFG of Wombaroo) said he did not recommend them because of the high iron content. I'd have to find the old post to know for sure though.

That is correct Shelly, he did say something about the arrowroot 'cookie' as follows:

Hi Alden,

I wouldn’t recommend using a fortified baby biscuit as food for gliders. Just a normal plain cookie wouldn’t have as much iron. The arrowroot biscuits we get here in Australia are not fortified for babies – I probably should delete reference to them for our US customers!



(this can be found here:

I believe she is actually talking about the root itself though which I would not personally recommend feeding. Please read this page and the evidence/disclaimer section. thumb

If you want to know what a person is like, watch how he treats others.

You'll never know what the outcome is if you don't step up and try.

Our arrowroot biscuits (cookies) here are definitely not baby ones so no extras in the way of iron etc.. Our gliders and possums love them and I use them as a couple of times a week dry food option alongside other rotational items such as sunflower kernels, almonds, dried native seeds,leaves & blossoms, dried fruits etc,etc
