A low glycemic feed with slow release energy for breeding, growing and performance horses.
Barastoc Low GI Cube is a low starch, fully fortified feed for breeding and performance horses in a highly palatable and convenient cube. Research has shown that low glycemic feeds produce more balanced energy levels due to lower blood sugar and insulin spikes following a meal. KER Low GI Cube provides energy from fat and digestible bre, with a reduced proportion of energy from starch resulting in a lower glycemic response to feeding.

The horse's digestive tract is designed to slowly digest and absorb mainly brous feed. Feeds with high levels of starch and sugar are absorbed quickly, resulting in sudden changes in blood glucose and insulin levels. In addition, some starch escapes digestion in the small intestine and will be fermented in the large intestine, which may result in hindgut acidosis. Hindgut acidosis can increase the risk of colic, laminitis and behavioural disorders in many horses. KER Low GI Cube is a low starch feed that may reduce the risk or severity of these conditions by minimizing sudden changes in blood glucose and insulin levels
