Raw fibre enrichment
Herbavital – depectinised apple pomace has a raw fibre content of 28%. The raw fibre content of Herbavital is much higher than that of other native sources of raw fibre, such as wheat bran, sugar beet pulp and oat hulls.
Only apples that have undergone the strictest incoming goods inspections under food law for juice and pectin production are used as the raw material for the production of Herbavital. This means that the risk of the product containing unwanted substances (such as mycotoxins) is minimal.
To ensure a long shelf life, Herbavital is dried to a dry matter of over 88% in a state-of-the-art, gas-fired drying plant immediately after depectinisation.
High raw fibre content and quality, excellent flavour, a long shelf life and year-round availability – that’s what makes Herbavital so impressive.
These qualities make Herbavital a valuable feed material for many species of animal.
