Crude fibre source based on cellulose
Our natural cellulose under the brand name JELUCEL® hat a cellulose content of approx. 99.5% in dry substance. The benefits are:
- absence of mycotoxins
- excellent swelling and water-binding capacity
- extremely high crude fibre content
- manufacture from controlled resources
- production certified according to ISO 9001 and HACCP
Energy-reduced pet food
In JELUCEL® we produce a crude fibre source that can be added to pet food, thus increasing the crude fibre content and reducing the energy density in the food. With dry food, the high water-binding capacity of the cellulose ensures that the food swells in the stomach, leading to the animal being full for longer. Dog and cat foods of which the energy density was reduced by adding cellulose have proved their suitability as dietetic food for weight reduction.
Crude fibre for healthier calves and piglets
Compared to common crude fibre sources, the proportion of crude fibre in JELUCEL® cellulose is constantly high. As a consequence, the recommended crude fibre content in the feed can be adjusted optimally and nutrient-independently.
Crude fibre supports the natural immunological defence of calves, boosting their resistance to diarrhoea and respiratory diseases. Even in piglets, cellulose can prevent diarrhoea after the weaning phase.
This results in stronger and healthier animals.
