The Benefits: isolate whey protein for horses

Some forages are low in available protein due to a complicated interaction between nitrogen and Sulphur levels in the soil. Many horses benefit from an increase in protein. Extra protein can help with lethargy problems and poor hoof and skin quality. Our isolate whey protein enables you to target extra protein supplementation without including extra calories but with very low sugar levels. Your horse can therefore continue to enjoy ad-lib hay without the added calorie concerns that feeding more concentrates would entail.

This Whey Protein provides 90g of protein per 100g (dry basis), is low in fat and lactose (sugars) and rich in calcium. It is an excellent source of essential amino acids and contains one of the highest proportions of branched chain amino acids found in natural protein.

Traceability is a key part of our quality monitoring process and to aid this process source only human grade whey protein isolate.

    I like this product. It is easy to digest for my senior mare. I do not feed grain and I am glad I have a way to increase the protein intake.
