Fibre: a health and well-being “promoter”

Usually disregarded in pets’ diets, fibre can actually play an important role in their health. While pets such as cats and dogs do not derive any energy from fibre, adding fibre to their daily diet can improve well-being and bring some interesting health benefits. Take advantage of the wide range of GMO-free and low -ash Roquette fibre solutions, whether obtained from corn, wheat, potatoes or peas.

Insoluble fibre for weight management. 

Insoluble fibre like Roquette pea hulls are commonly used in pet food for dietary management of obesity. Indeed insoluble fibre ingestion naturally promotes satiety (the feeling of bulk in the stomach) without adding calories!

Insoluble and soluble fibre for digestive health

Insoluble fibre like Roquette pea hulls play a mechanical role in gut transit speed. This can help regulate digestion, with positive impacts on constipation. 

Conversely, both Roquette pea hulls and potato fibre can also have a beneficial effect on diarrhea thanks to their water-binding capacity.

NUTRIOSE® prebiotic fibre, a wheat- or maize-based dextrin and Roquette potato fibre are involved in the proper functioning of the intestine immune system by positively regulating the pets’ intestinal flora. They reduce the risk of colon inflammation and minimize faeces volume and smell.

Mixed fibre like COREX® M100 or MILUREX® combine the benefits of both types of fibre. As a consequence, they can be a reliable and stable source of fibre for healthy dogs.

Insoluble and/or soluble fibre for hairball control

Adding insoluble and/or soluble fibre to cats’ diets will facilitate the passage of hair through the gastrointestinal tract and in faeces without causing obstruction or constipation. This is at the same time as minimizing hairball formation in the digestive tract.
