Low GI Cube Low GI Cube Bag

A low-glycemic feed with slow-release energy for breeding, growing and performance horses.

KER Low GI Cube is a low-starch, fully fortified feed for breeding and performance horses in a highly palatable and convenient cube. Scientific research has shown that low-glycemic feed sources produce more balanced energy levels due to lower blood sugar and insulin spikes following a meal. KER Low GI Cube derives energy from fat and fibre, including the ultimate super-fibre beet pulp and soy hulls, reducing the proportion of energy derived from starch and resulting in a lower glycemic response to feeding.

Low GI CUBE also contains highly bioavailable Zinpro® organic minerals, which have numerous benefits such as promotion of hoof wall growth, coat quality and increased bone mineralization. Increased levels of natural vitamin E assist with immune support and muscle health.

USES

The horse's digestive tract is designed to slowly digest and absorb feed. Feeds high in fibre, 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 ferments in the large intestine causing hindgut acidosis. Hindgut acidosis can increase the risk of colic, laminitis and behavioral disorders. KER Low GI Cube is a low-starch feed that may reduce the risk or severity of these conditions through minimizing sudden changes in blood glucose and insulin levels.

Glycemic Response

Elevated glycemic response may be associated with increased risk of developmental orthopedic disease, tying-up, behavioral disorders and insulin resistance. KER Low GI Cube is a rich source of highly digestible fiber, essential for maintaining a healthy digestive system and providing slow-release, cool energy.
