What is the recommended dosage for FiberBites?

FiberBites provide an easy to administer, readily accepted source of fiber for nonhuman primates. Each bite contains approximately 2 grams of inulin, a probiotic 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.

You should see stool improvement within several days to a week.
