  • What is the recommended dosage for FiberBites?

    FiberBites provide an easy to administer, readily accepted source of fiber for non-human primates. Each bite contains approximately 2 grams of inulin, a prebiotic fiber source that promotes a healthy gastrointestinal tract. 

    The general recommend daily dose of fiber in NHPs is 1.5 to 2 grams per kg per day. Assuming the primate weighs 8 kilos – it requires 12 to 16 grams of fiber per day. To convert grams of fiber needed to the proper number of FiberBites, divide the daily fiber dose by 2 grams. 

    For example, 12 to 16 grams of fiber daily equals 6-8 FiberBites; we would recommend starting with 3 pieces twice a day and increasing to 4 twice daily depending upon your results. 

  • What is the best way to store FiberBites?

    FiberBites are best if stored between 55-65 degrees Fahrenheit (13-18 degrees Celsius)

  • What is the shelf life for FiberBites?

    The shelf life of FiberBites is 24 months.

  1. We provide FiberBites to our rhesus and cynomolgus macaques. A veterinarian prescribes them as a clinical treatment for diarrhea and in a few cases for constipation. They are not in our macaque enrichment program. Some animal will eat them as is, some only eat a specific flavor, and some have to have them camouflaged in something else (like a smear of peanut butter on them). Overall, we like the product and they are an easy treatment to give, especially for the animals that eat them directly.

  2. We have used this product as a fiber source, to treat selected cases of diarrhea in macaques.
    They seem to be palatable, as the monkeys like them.
