Looking at the formulation of the block and bites, the base ingredient is a product called Dried Distillers Grain (DDG). DDG is the by-product from the distilling process in the alcohol or ethanol production.
The wheat and barley grains are heat treated and fermented, using microbes similar to those found in the hindgut of the horse for over 30 hours. It is then re-heat treated to produce a grain-based product, which is highly palatable, yet low in both sugars and starch. It is high in microbial protein and contains a good level of fat.
Consequently, the EqNC Premium Horse Lick Block and Bites provide good energy, high quality protein, low sugars and starch, and a premium amount of minerals and vitamins with the added benefit of essential amino acids.
