Seaweeds as a rich source of prebiotic dietary fibers and important nutrients for pet food

september 08 2020

Seaweeds are unique ingredients that offer a number of health benefits for pets, such as cats and dogs. The most important property of these marine macroalgae is their very high content of soluble prebiotic dietary fibers, that are increasingly recognized as an important functional ingredient in pet food. The benefits of prebiotic dietary fibers to pets include good gut health, a lower risk of different kinds of disease and an effective reinforcement against digestive disorders. Of the different kinds of seaweeds, green seaweeds offer a cost-effective ingredient with high palatability, low level of contaminants and an excellent reputation as a healthy source of food for both humans and pets.

In the latest white paper by Geert van der Velden, IQI Trusted Petfood Ingredients’ Innovation Manager, he explains the specific benefits of all kinds of seaweeds in pet food applications.
