nutrition health benefits beet pulp dogs

Beet pulp is the dried fibers left from the extraction of its sugars for human use as a sweetener. Most animal nutrition researchers consider beet pulp an excellent moderately fermentable fiber source that has pre-biotic properties.

Its fibers are unique. They contain both soluble and insoluble fibers in a special ratio that has been shown to positively aid in the healthy digestion of food for pets, as proven by Dr. George Fahey’s laboratory at the University of Illinois.

Furthermore, these insoluble fibers provide health benefits for your pet. They help regulate the flow of digesta through the digestive tract to aid in maximizing nutrient absorption and yield good quality firm stools. It has been proven that beet pulp (being part of a good pre-biotic system) is a valuable ingredient that helps contribute to a healthy immune system, by providing a healthy gut and essential nutrients that pets need.

It is important to note that beet pulp fibers have some distinct short chain-sugars such as Inulin and Fructooligosaccharides (FOS), which supply energy to encourage the growth of friendly bacteria in the intestines and colon.
