Teklad primate diets are fixed-formula diets formulated to provide the proper balance of nutrients required by new-world and old-world primates of all breeds and ages. Diets are formulated to provide uniform experimental and production results.

A combination of plant, milk and fish protein sources supplies the proper amounts and balance of essential amino acids necessary to maintain the physical condition of research primates throughout their life cycle and research function.

High-quality fat sources provide the balance of essential fatty acids required for growth, maintenance, and reproduction. These sources of fat also provide a highly digestible source of energy.

Teklad primate diets are fortified with vitamin and minerals including vitamin D3 for proper bone development and vitamin C for prevention of scurvy and anemia. Stabilized vitamin C (L-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate) is used to extend the shelf life. Diets are nutritionally complete and balanced making additional dietary supplements unnecessary.

Teklad primate Diets are extruded to help break down starches, improving digestibility and palatability. Feeding highly digestible extruded diets results in firm stools, which helps reduce cleaning time.
