Micronising is an infra-red, high-speed, high-temperature cooking process that causes minimal degradation of nutrient quality. Micronised Linseed Meal is incredibly high in energy, oil and protein, and as such, it is highly effective at improving condition and aiding muscle development, as well as contributing to a shiny, healthy coat.

Micronised Linseed Meal is a rich source of essential fatty acids (Omega 3; 6 and 9) and is high in anti-oxidants, whilst its anti-inflammatory action helps maintain supple joints and general good health. It is therefore highly suitable for veterans.

As it contains very low levels of both starch and sugar, it is also suitable for laminitics or those horses and ponies suffering from clinical nutritional diseases (such as PPID / Cushing’s Disease).

Recent research has found that Micronised Linseed Meal, once metabolised, creates mucilage which lines the gut wall and helps guard against acid attack (it is therefore useful for adding additional calories to the rations of horses and ponies that are prone to EGUS).

 

Top Tip!
If your horse or pony is lacking in muscle or condition, Micronised Linseed Meal represents a highly concentrated and effective way to provide additional quality protein and energy in their ration.
