Vivae’s Fiber 3DTM fights pets obesity and bans feelings of deprivation.
As humans, pets increasingly suffer from unbalanced diet and lack of physical activity endangering their well-being, their health and ultimately their life span. Thus, pet weight management becomes a rising concern for pet owners. Factors such as breed, age, sex or hormonal imbalances can all contribute to weight gain. Weight loss diets solely based on intake reduction often fail due to low owner compliance, as they are reluctant to deprive their dearest companion.
Good news! Vivae has developed Fiber 3D™, an innovative solution that provides a longer-lasting feeling of satiety, satisfying pets’ appetite while supporting owners in their pet’s weight management program.
Understanding pets and owners’ needs
Understanding the decisive role of pet owners in cats and dogs’ weight management led Vivae to approach the issue differently. “For pet owners, feeding their pets is about love not frustration. This insight was fundamental in understanding that weight management pet food has to be attractive to pets and provide a feeling of satiety”, explains Caroline Ecoffard, Vivae Marketing Product Manager @Diana Pet Food.
Understanding of both pets and owners’ needs was the first step for Vivae to set up a research program for new ingredients that can reach the ideal balance between palatability and satiety.
“Our research led to the development of Fiber 3DTM, a non-soluble fiber solution made from sugar cane helping to slow the digestive process and thus providing a longer-lasting feeling of satiety.”
