Digestive troubles are ones of the most common pet health issues reported by pet parents. Owners are thus actively looking for solutions to limit this problem and ensure the well-being of their companion animals. Pet food supplementation with high-quality parietal fractions from baker yeasts is an efficient way to ensure the natural management of pet digestive health. Digestive health relies on several pillars including high gut wall integrity, efficient local immune defenses and a balanced microbiota with controlled pathogen population. When one of these elements is affected, various troubles can emerge, from local disorders to more global health disturbances.

Provided that strain selection and process expertise allow guaranteeing a consistent composition in the structure and percentage of their active components, selected parietal fractions added in diet can have a protective effect on the gut. Indeed, mannans and beta-glucans present in yeast cell walls can reduce pathogen pressure by binding pathogens and adsorbing toxins entering into the body via food for example. They can also support natural defenses by modulating inflammatory mechanisms and stimulating the immune system. By constituting a natural shield for the gut, yeast parietal fractions can improve health and resistance against an intestinal upset.



  1. When it comes to health promise, the qualitative and quantitative guarantee of active components in yeast parietal fractions is critical.
  2. Gut health is based on the management of 3 pillars: a balanced microbiota, gut wall integrity, local immune defenses
  3. Pathogen binding, stimulation of innate immunity, and other yeast benefits can bring value to junior, adult or senior market segments.

This webinar is sponsored by Diana Pet Food and is presented by Petfood Industry and WATT Global Media.
