Forageplus pea protein for horses is suitable for anyone looking for a quality powder to improve daily protein intake.

Forageplus Pea Protein Powder is sourced entirely from the dried peas and is the perfect alternative for horses owners wishing to supplement extra protein to their horse and avoid other protein sources due to food allergy or intolerance.

The amino acid profile of pea protein is excellent – it is rich in ‘branched chain amino acids’ (leucine, isoleucine, valine) and is richer in arginine than any other commercially available protein.

Why Feed Horses Pea Protein?

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 whey protein enables you to target extra protein supplementation without including extra calories.  Your horse can therefore continue to enjoy ad-lib hay without the added calorie concerns that feeding more concentrates would entail.

Pea protein for horses is great for anyone who wants to boost their horse’s protein intake with an easy-to-digest high quality protein, rich in essential amino acids. This is a vegetable sourced protein (which doesn’t include soya) that is milk and egg free.

Naturally contains 85.9% protein.
