No animal is more difficult to feed than a horse, and no feed compounder is as particular in the selection of the best ingredients as the horse feed producer.
For these demanding customers BENEO-Animal Nutrition has selected a number of ingredients ranging from well-balanced fiber sources to a special sugar syrup.
All to improve the digestion and health of your favourite friends and champions
Metabolic disorders due to bad digestion such as, e.g., gastric ulcers, colic and laminitis are major issues in the feeding of the horse. In order to overcome these digestive problems we have selected a number of ingredients which support intestinal health.
Prebiotics obtained from chicory are a source of fermentable fibers that have been shown to reduce the risk of gastro-intestinal problems and colic in horses. Stimulation of the good bacteria in the large intestine and longer villi leads to improved intestinal health.
Functional Sugar Syrup
In horse nutrition molasses is often used as a dust-binder and as a flavouring. However, the sugar overload in the intestines and high ash content often cause digestive problems. BeneoCarb S is a unique sugar syrup with a sweet, honey-like taste. Featuring slow-release sugars and minimum ash contents, this sugar syrup overcomes these problems. The special sugars in the syrup are more slowly digested and offer the horse a prolonged supply of energy.
