We have bought the occasional dehydrated or freeze dried fruits as random treats for our gliders. We have always stayed with The unsulfured varieties because of what somebody told us. We wanted to raise the question here to get experienced glider parents input. Is sulfur dioxide something that doesnt matter, is it ok if its random, or should it be avoided as much as possible? Thank you very much for your replies! Looking forward to learning!

I get dried papaya at pet store it has nothing added, specially sugar.
that is the problem I run into, most dried HUMAN fruits have sugar added, this is bad. way to fatty for your gliders. Vet even said that dried fruits have lots of natural sugars, so to much can be bad for your glider.

As for unsulfured, that I have no idea, sorry, just wanted to let you know about the sugar content problems.

Thank you for the input about the sugar. We already knew about this but we greatly appreciate the fact that you thought enough to respond about it. We get our dried fruits from an all natural health food store.

I saw on your profile youre in Indiana. Do you mind telling me if youre in the northern third, the middle third or the southern third? Were in southwestern lower Michigan, Berrien County to be more precise. Were hoping to start a glider community in the area.
