Minimum amount of crude fiber?

Minimum amount of crude fiber? Empty Minimum amount of crude fiber?

Post by Sid on Thu 06 Dec 2018, 2:46 pm

So I'm picking out food for my new mice, but I noticed on here, no one mentions minimum requirements for crude fiber. I know protein should be under 13%, but not by too much and you should watch for hotspots. Fat should be 5-8%, but all I can find is that fiber should be under 10%. How little is too little? The food I'm considering has 6% crude fiber. Is that enough or not? Is there a way I can bulk it with more fiber, if I need to?

I don’t think there’s much info out there suggesting an exact amount of fiber. Most of what I’ve read just says less than 10%. Most foods I look at aren’t much below that or are a bit above, so I’ve never really worried too much about it. Pardon

For most untracked lines, crude protein should be 12-14%.
