What are the Benefits of Feeding Fibregest? 

  • Recommended to be fed to all camelids and complements the use of Camelibra NG-2 or Hembra & Cria.
  • Complements the nutritional, physical and supplementary digestive process of the camelid.
  • Provides a perfect source of digestible soluble fibres.
  • Maintains essential foregut microbial fermentation.​
  • Sustains beneficial fibre-digesting bacteria.
  • Provides energy for health and conditioning.
  • Provides natural trace elements and bio-available minerals.
  • Contains the unique Oatinol® Delivery System to maintain a high rate of nutrient absorption.
  • Wheat gluten free.
  • A 100% non-GM, soya free formulation.
  • Manufactured to Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS) standards as palatable, easy-to-feed 3mm pellets.

Why Should I Feed Fibregest to My Alpaca or Llama?

Soluble fibre in 3mm pellet form is ideal for both young and old alike. The small particle size (like feed that has been chewed for a long time) aids the digestive system of the camelid by providing a high quality, more available, energy source for fermentative foregut bacteria.

Maintaining natural foregut digestion is crucial for the health and vitality of alpacas and llamas. The nature of the feed can have dramatic effects on wellbeing, as all food goes straight into the fermentation vat of the forestomach where factors like motility, gas eructation, regurgitation, remastication and reswallowing are all part of the normal feeding process.

Fibregest is very complementary to this digestive process in terms of the nutritional, physical and supplementary content. The digestibility of the soluble fibre will energize microbial activity, so maintaining a high rate of nutrient release for the benefit of the camelid. The criteria for maintaining functional fermentation:

  • A constant pH of between 6 and 7, i.e. slightly acidic to neutral conditions.
  • A high fibre and low/non grain diet to sustain populations of cellulolytic bugs.
  • A high fibre diet to maintain saliva production, gut motility and gas eructation.
  • A high fibre diet to maximise regurgitation, remastication and reswallowing.

Explained - Nutraceuticals & the Unique Oatinol® Delivery System

Explained - The 4 Active Nutraceuticals in the Unique Oatinol Delivery System

A nutraceutical is defined as any substance that is a food or part of a food and provides medical or health benefits, including the prevention and treatment of disease (DeFelice, 1994).

Oatinol is a natural high quality oil based concept developed by and unique to GWF Nutrition. When incorporated into the feed it supplies the following four active nutraceuticals to:

  • Maintain gut cell integrity.
  • Maintain the lining of the gut.
  • Support the immune system.
  • Aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.

Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers

Galactolipids are a combination of sugar and fat molecules that create the perfect medium for the absorption of active ingredients across the gut wall.

Natural Tocotrienol Antioxidants

Tocotrienol antioxidants are a natural form of vitamin E. They are 40-60 times more readily available than other forms of vitamin E and help to maintain the integrity of the cells forming the lining of the gut to aid absorption.

Oat Derived Beta Glucans

Beta Glucans have prebiotic properties that support beneficial bacteria in the gut to promote healthy absorption.

Phospholipids

Phospholipids have emulsifying properties and have been shown to actively influence nutrient digestibility and absorption.

Daily Feeding Recommendation

Alpacas

  • General Maintenance Level: 1 - 2gm per kg Liveweight / Day
  • Example: A 50kg alpaca would require 50gm (min) - 100gm (max) of Fibregest per day

Llamas

  • General Maintenance Level: 1 - 2gm per kg Liveweight / Day
  • Example: A 150kg llama would require 150gm (min) - 300gm (max) of Fibregest per day

Camels

  • General Maintenance Level: 1 - 2gm per kg Liveweight / Day
  • Example: A 500kg camel would require 500gm (min) - 1kg (max) of Fibregest per day
