Today talking about aging of pets is more related to joint health and mobility, to help them decrease the pain, and being able to move easier. However, to be more competitive and different on the market, we have to go deeper; the modulation of immune-inflammatory pathways is one key. Yeast fraction main modes of action consist in improving gut health and body defenses against daily life challenges. One of the main functionality also of this type of ingredient is the reduction of pathogen or toxin pressure. Studies in vitro and in vivo on pets have shown that these paraprobiotics are becoming increasingly valuable ingredients in pet food application, ensuring better health and wellbeing to our companion animals. Examples will be given, explained and discussed during the presentation.
