Multifunctional Crude Fiber Concentrates
for your Petfood Products


ARBOCEL® Advantages in Petfood:

1. Satiation

ARBOCEL® is the most inert and highly swelling fiber concentrate on the market - due to this, the stretch receptors on the stomach are activated and satiation is given.

2. Less feces

Scientific trials have shown that ARBOCEL® is well able to increase digestibility and thus reduce the amount of feces by more than 20% - an amazing result your customers will not have to measure, they will see it!

3. Dental hygiene

ARBOCEL®´s fiber network stabilizes your formulation and is completely insoluble - this leads to a very smooth abrasive effect that is cleaning the teeth very gently.

4. Anti-hairball-effect

ARBOCEL®´s fine fiber network encloses the hair in its network structure and transports it our through the GI tract - here the high fibrillation grade of ARBOCEL® helps to make it very efficient.

5. Improved feces consistency

ARBOCEL® 's ability to increase the nutrient digestibility leads to less undigested nutrients in the colon - thus less problems with undesired fermentation processes. Furthermore the insoluble fiber network cares for a 'sponge effect' and helps resorption of water in the colon - thus the feces are more dry and less sticky.
