Hygain Ultra-low Starch™


For All Horses

The Hygain® Ultra-Low Starch™ range has been designed with the horses’ overall digestive health and wellbeing in mind. Its formulations include options that are high fiber, cereal grain-free, soy-free, low-starch, low-NSC and fortified with Bonafide® for bone support.

Hygain® 's Ultra-Low Starch™ range has options suitable forjust about every horse in the barn — from horses needing a maintenance or low intensity work formulation, to top athletes with higher energy needs, and to those on an all-forage diet. The Hygain® Ultra-Low Starch™ range includes feed with the lowest starch and NSC content available on the market, making it an ideal choice for horses experiencing digestive upset, laminitis, equine metabolic syndrome and Cushing’s. The cereal grain-free and soy-free options may also be suitable for horses with food sensitivities or allergies.

Hygain®’s Ultra-Low Starch™ feeds have been specifically formulated to meet vitamin, mineral and energy requirements, with a 50% reduction in non-structural carbohydrates. In addition to reducing the carbohydrates and sugars, you are also able to reduce feeding rates by 30-50% in comparison to many other low starch brands. These lower feeding rates can substantially reduce overall feed costs while providing your whole barn with improved health and wellbeing.
