Whey Protein


whey proteinWhat is Forageplus Whey Protein ?

Our whey protein concentrate for horses is produced using only premium human grade whey protein concentrate, delivering a massive 82% protein content.

Whey Protein Benefits?

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.

This whey protein is a rich source of protein concentrate from vegetarian sweet cheese, sourced directly from the world’s leading whey protein manufacturers. Having the highest Biological Value (BV) of any known protein, whey protein concentrate contains high levels of both essential and non-essential Amino Acids.

The manufacturing process utilises a unique combination of membrane filtration technology and drying at low temperature and pressure. This ensures gentle separation and concentration of the protein and retains its natural function and high nutritional value to give a high quality whey protein concentrate.

This Whey Protein provides 82g of protein per 100g (dry basis), is low in fat and lactose 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.

Which horses will benefit from the addition of Whey Protein Concentrate?

  • Horses which are on a reduced hay ration due to needing to lose weight.
  • Older horses which are struggling to maintain top line.
  • Horses which have access to low protein levels in the forage they are eating, this can be determined from a nutritional and mineral analysis of grass, hay or haylage.
  • Horses with poor hoof wall connection and or cracks.
  • Horse in heavy work.

    I have been trialing whey protein on my two boys. This was largely as I have rather a weedy five year old who needs to finish his growing, but also to some extent because I am fairly into the amino acid thing with them both because of their muscle/energy issues. Acetyl-L-Carnitine, which is an amino acid derivative, helps tremendously but I suspect their protein levels may be quite low especially in winter so looked on whey protein (rather than soya etc) as a good thing to try. What I have noticed while they have both been having whey is that my young horse’s movement has become steadier, less rushy, and his neck is filling out at the base where previously he looked rather like a swan. He seems stronger and steadier. My older horse is fit and well muscled anyway but now looks like Arnold Schwarzenneger and when I ride him he feels like rocket fuel power, but not in a silly way (no sillier than usual anyway). So all in all I think they have both really benefited from the addition of quality concentrated protein, both their ridden and physical improvements, in just a few short weeks, on about 100g per day and I shall definitely be getting another batch from Forageplus. A very pleased double horse owner!
