Beetroot pulp has a functional phytotherapy role in supplementing pet food.


Knowing the advantages that food may provide to the health of animals has been a source of research in nutritional science for years.

In addition to the basic functions of feeding and nourishing, functional food also promotes metabolic effects. This type of product has caught the eye of the production chain. This is the case of beet pulp, which, in addition to nutritional benefits, has phytotherapy and therapeutic role when used in pet food supplementation. It has been widely used in horse nutrition as well.


Why using it?

Since it is the noblest source of fiber for the pet segment, the benefits of Beet Pulp are notorious.

Its exclusive composition of moderate fermentation fibers and low lignin prevents irritation of the intestinal mucosa, keeps the colon healthy, and massages the intestinal wall, thus increasing the peristaltic movement and facilitating the excretion of feces.


Fibers from White Beet Pulp also act as a water and microorganism absorption structure in feces, improving consistency, and reducing fecal odor.


The better consistency of feces (fecal score) makes excretion much easier, which increases the welfare of animals that consume feed with Beet Pulp. It is especially recommended for dogs and cats.
