Pavo RiceBran Topping for a hit horse with lots of stamina - 20Kg
Pavo RiceBran contains high levels of slow-releasing energy, meaning your horse will be full of energy but will not become hot or unpredictable. As Pavo RiceBran is not only high in energy but also high in protein, it’s the perfect product to support your horse becoming energetic and fit with a perfect body condition.
Where does the energy come from?
The high levels of oil and starch are the main source of the high amount of slow releasing energy in Pavo RiceBran. You might wonder how starch contributes to slow releasing energy when starch is normally known as quick-releasing energy (like a peak – high amounts for a short period of time). Let’s explain!
Starch is basically a chain of many glucose molecules linked together. Starch that comes from grains is linked in a different way compared to starch that comes from rice bran, therefore the starch is digested differently as well. Grain-starch is normally digested rapidly, resulting in a peak of glucose in the blood. This peak of glucose leads to high amounts and directly available energy which we call the quick-releasing energy. In contrast, the starch from Pavo RiceBran is digested gradually. The gradual digestion leads to a slower and steadier release of glucose which we experience in our horses as slow-releasing energy. Because of the slow and gradual release of glucose (energy) the glycaemic index of Pavo RiceBran is low. The glyceamic index indicates the extent to which carbohydrates (sugar & starch) in a product affect the glucose levels in the blood. The starch from Pavo RiceBran is, therefore, a well digestible and valuable source of energy for your horse.
More about Pavo RiceBran
There are more benefits to feeding Pavo RiceBran as well as energy and protein. The high levels of oil contribute to a good-looking and shiny coat. As rice bran is a very oil-rich product, it is important that it is stabilized to avoid it becoming rancid. Pavo RiceBran is stabilized by heat treatment, in contrast to other products that are stabilized by the addition of chemical anti-oxidants. As a result, Pavo RiceBran remains 100% natural (no additives). Moreover, Pavo RiceBran contains potent anti-oxidants and a natural Vitamin E source, thus supporting overall health and muscle function.
Another important aspect of Pavo RiceBran is the way it is produced. In the production of rice bran, the rice needs to be de-hulled which is normally done with calcium carbonate (chalk). However, when calcium carbonate is used, the calcium/phosphor ratio, which is very important for the health of your horses, is affected. The rice in Pavo RiceBran is mechanically de-hulled, so without using calcium carbonate. As a result, the calcium/phosphor ratio is not affected and Pavo RiceBran remains 100% natural.
Pavo RiceBran needs to be fed as a topping, meaning you feed it in small amounts on top of your normal concentrate(s). Like sprinkles on your ice cream, but in a far healthier way!
