Exotic Nutrition's Instant-HPW Original (Vanilla Bean flavor) was formulated to be a nutritious diet for pet sugar gliders. Wholesome natural ingredients such as eggs, honey, and whey protein are blended with essential vitamins and minerals into an easy-to-mix powder. Simply add water, mix, and offer to your pet. Instant-HPW contains the recommended nutrition necessary for proper growth and development of pet sugar gliders. 

  • Nutritious diet for pet sugar gliders, with delicious vanilla bean.
  • Mix with water for a quick and easy fresh diet.
  • Yucca extract acts as a natural pet deodorizer.
  • Serve fresh or freeze into individual servings.
  • 100% Made in the USA at a USDA registered facility.
  • Net Weight: 8 oz. / 227 gm.

Mixing & Serving Instructions: Mix the Instant-HPW powder with water to form a fresh diet for your pet sugar gliders. Mix at a 1:2 ratio of HPW powder to water. For example, 1 tbsp of Instant-HPW powder with 2 tbsp of water. Serve in the evenings when your gliders are waking up. Remove any uneaten fresh foods from the cage in the morning, after about 12 hours.

Sugar gliders are gummivores and feed on eucalyptus sap, acacia gum, and nectars in the wild. Add more water to your Instant-HPW to create a thinner "nectar" consistency or add less water to create a thicker "sap" consistency. You can mix and serve the HPW fresh or store the mixture in the refrigerator (up to 7 days), or in the freezer (up to 6 months). When freezing the mixture, we recommend using ice trays for individual serving sizes. Simply remove one HPW cube (per two gliders) from the freezer and thaw before serving. 

Feeding Instructions: Offer approximately ½ tbsp of Instant-HPW (blended) along with 1 tbsp nutritional pellet such as Glider Complete or kibble such as Glider Essentials and 1 tbsp of Garden Fresh Re-Hydrate fruits & veggies (per glider each day). Adjust the amount to ensure your pet's optimum body weight. Always provide multiple sources of bottled drinking water in your sugar gliders cage.

Sugar Gliders thrive with variety in their diet. Instant-HPW is best served with Glider Complete or Glider Essentials and Garden Fresh Re-Hydrate. This diet can be varied by offering Gummivore-fare, Gliderade, Berries & Bugs, or other supplemental foods. Glider-Cal and Glider Booster should be used when feeding supplemental foods like fresh fruits and vegetables. 

Storage Instructions: Store the Instant-HPW powder sealed in a cool, dry place. If storing for longer than 8 weeks, refrigeration is strongly suggested. Adhere to the expiration date printed on the bag.

Ingredients: dried powdered whole eggs, whey protein concentrate, soy protein concentrate, dried powdered honey, maltodextrin, dextrose, gum arabic, guar gum, flax seeds, powdered bee pollen, calcium carbonate, taurine, lysine, natural flavorings and more. Full ingredient list found on packaging.

Guaranteed Analysis: crude protein (min) 39.00%, crude fat (max) 13.00%, crude fiber (max) 6.00%, moisture 10.00% (max), calcium (min) 0.80%, calcium (max) 1.00%, phosphorus (min) 0.40%, selenium (min) 0.017 ppm, vitamin A (min) 1.60 kiu/lb.

My suggies love it. - Molly P.

by Evilthecat on August 13, 2022

As a past breeder, the main source of Vitamins & Minerals for all of my gliders & joeys is Instant HPW. I have been using it for over 15 years and I trust nothing else to keep my gliders healthy & happy. I also make it a condition when I home a new Joey that the new owners have a supply of Instant HPW on hand, or I will not let them take it. It is that essential. -John K.

[Response from Seller: Thank you for your review. We’re sorry to hear that Skittles isn't eating the HPW as expected. Possibly trying different flavors will satisfy Skittles appetite!

As a past Sugar Glider breeder, I have relied on Instant HPW for over 15 years, to the point where I will not home a new Joey unless the new owners guarantee they will provide it. It is an essential part of a Sugar Gliders nutrition. -John K. (Ontario, Canada)

Have been feeding this to my gliders for many years and they just love it. They have been happy and healthy. I make it ahead of time in silicone ice cube trays and freeze it. Would highly recommend! -Star H.

We switched over our diet to HPW & pellets to try to give them a more complete diet that isnt lacking nutrients that they need. For the first week they were being very picky, wouldn't even try it and only wanted to eat their old food. Now they both love the HPW and will kick it off the spoon everynight. They love both the honey and fruit as well as the vanilla bean flavors. -Katelyn.

by HarleyPowers on May 21, 2020

I just got my Sugar gliders recently from a kind old man unable to take care of them and he fed them this. They seem to enjoy it and I've gone as far as buying some other products from them as well. It's affordable and it smells amazing. I love the pamphlet they send with their products and how fast shipment is; I don't have to stress about it not coming onto for my sugar babies. -Harley P.

Fast shipping, good quality food, my gliders just do not care for it. -Danielle G.

by mamoza on April 6, 2020

My babies absolutely love this. Milo and Jasper literally lick the bowls clean. I switch between this flavor and the berry. They love both equally. It freezes well. I use silicone shape cubes to keep it interesting<3 -Karen D.

by Cody94 on March 28, 2020

Highly recommend this, tarted off with the fruit and veggie blend and this one sounded better and decided to try them on it and they love it -Cody M.

by Aldias on March 18, 2020

I was using this originally as a backup HPW. However every time I made it, my 3 suggies would be a little more excited for their HPW. So, I figured to try it out full time. I really love how well it freezes! I measure 3 Tbsp into my silicone ice cube tray, close the lid and toss it into the freezer. Easy to pop out, defrosts well. (I have tried microwaving it to melt too, for my microwave I only need like 12 seconds. It’s still partially frozen, but stirred it melts down and isn’t too hot, just warm.) It gets HOT FAST, so be careful if you micro it. Normally I just leave it out in the food bowl to do it’s thing while I eat dinner. Gliders lap it up, usually leaving a small amount in the bottom. They don’t seem to really lick the bowl clean with this. -April D.

by Julie.goss on March 14, 2020

It is the 1lbs and it's a great amount as well! I only have one snuggie so it'll work well for a while! -Julie G.

My gliders will not eat the HPW ORIGINAL powder you mix with water they will eat the ready to feed in the jars I am going to try the fruit and honey and hope they eat it -Victoria S.

[Response from Seller: Sorry to hear that Victoria! Try drizzling honey on top of the HPW and they might like that more. Otherwise, email for more tips- we hope this helps!]

My gliders love this! I add it to the top of the glider complete and they always eat it, even if they don’t eat their other food. I am always confident that all of their nutritional needs are being met with Instant HPW. It is very easy to prepare and the shipping process is quick. Highly recommend! -Amanda A.

Been using this for over 2 years and my sugar gliders love it! Have never had any shipping problems either. It’s great to mix with a fruit/veggie mix as well to give your sugar gliders all the nutrition they need! Also love the fact that you sometimes find free surprises in your orders, my sugar gliders always love the new treats or samples they get to try! -Caitlin P.

by Anonymous on June 27, 2019

My two sugar gliders absolutely love the instant hpw. We make a large batch and freeze it into small portions in silicone trays. Meal time is beyond easy. And it doesn't make nearly the mess as a pelleted food. This was the first time we got the larger bag and it came with a small sample jelly cup which they 'could not get enough of'! Might have to buy them some of those now too! -Aimee L.

by amandaradan on June 10, 2019

My sugar gliders LOVE this stuff. They wake up earlier than normal just to come out and eat it. All 3 are soo picky and will not eat any pellet food whatsoever but they eat it like its crack. I am so thankful for this stuff. I mix a little bit of honey in it. -Amanda R.

Purchased my 2nd bag! 1 of my suggies refuses to eat a variety, refused baby food BUT THIS has been her lifesaver (don’t let ppl tell you they will eat the same mixed slop eventually, she was stubborn & starving herself) NEITHER of my suggies will eat this powder with water only! What works: mix w vanilla yogurt & plain uncooked oatmeal (plus dash of orange or apple juice or coconut water) add vitamins/calcium too. The oatmeal absorbs & it becomes a paste consistency. Bowls are licked clean now! -Ki M.

Both of my sugar gliders refuse to eat the HPW mixed with liquid. If I have it dusted on your fingers, they will lick it off but refuse to eat the mix otherwise. I have picky eaters that want worms eggs and fruit. -Lori B.

I don't like it as much as the kind I make myself. We just ran out, and needed to get some ASAP. This was the only option for getting something immediately, so we tried it. It is quicker to make, but it freezes so hard, that we could not even get any out until it was out of the freezer on the counter for 5 hours. And it isn't nearly as sweet as what we normally feed them, so we won't be getting it again. -Patti K.

My glider loves it when we mix the water with the naked green machine juice and add a mittle bit of honey. So we did 1C. HPW powder - 1C. Water - 1C. Green machine - 1/8C. Honey for a weeks worth and she love it just like the original. We just made the switch to instant. We were buying the original HPW powder but we can't find it anywhere now. So we are happy she likes this. -Sam

My sugar glider LOVES this stuff. I was unsure if he would eat it at first but he ate the whole bowl and we even mix it with his pellets so that he gets all the nutrition he needs. I’m glad I switched to exotic nutrition.

We just started using this and my babies were not sure about it at first but they started eating it and love it. I mix a little bit of honey into it and they demolish it. I have one glider that is a rescue and was not taken care of by its previous owner and it seemed like nothing we did would help. We were at the point that I thought we would lose him. Once we started serving HPW within a few days he did a complete 180 and is healthy as can be and so sweet. I can't say enough good stuff about this! -Lindsie

Mix it par the directions with organic mango juice from the market and gliders love it and never leave any behind. Since I have 6 gliders they can go through it rather quickly. But its easy to mix by shaking it in a protein shaker from the local health food store. Haven't tried it myself but it smells good with its hint of vanilla. -Adam

My female loves this stuff on the side of fresh fruits. I mix her veggies in this with a little organic honey on top and scrambled eggs for extra protein and she goes crazy for it. Eats almost the entire bowl.. would recommend this product especially young gliders that can be picky. -DeeDee

Our "mom" bought us this food for 7 of us, and she even tasted It herself! It tastes sweet like honey and smells yummy. We go NUTZ over this yellow liquid and finish it first before the fresh stuff she gets us. We are so very spoiled and as a sugar glider, it's recommended for the tastebuds. Back to my cage for now! -Marley Sugar glider age 4 (-Danyelle T)
