SHAPE-UP™ is a low starch, high fibre mix designed to provide a balanced diet at low intake levels, and to help maintain a normal,healthy metabolism. It can be used as a calorie (energy) controlled ration for those with an increased risk of metabolic disorders to meet micronutrient requirements whilst maintaining a low starch, sugar and calorie ration, which is also beneficial to those that may be prone to excitable temperaments.
SHAPE-UP™ is the result of nearly two years of research and development and incorporates some of the most recent and up to date nutritional innovations for horses and ponies that require a low starch and low-calorie feed. The ration is based on Saracen Horse Feeds’ “Super-Fibre” technology, meaning that energy is derived from slow-release, fibre sources that produce a minimal glycaemic response post feeding. The high fibre content of SHAPE-UP™ and the inclusion of an original acid neutralizing ingredient also helps to maintain a healthy digestive system for good-doers that may be on a restricted forage rations.
