Dengie Alfa-Beet (Unmolassed) is a low sugar conditioning feed that is unmolassed and so is easily digestible. It has a short soak time and is suitable for laminitic prone horses and ideal for veterans
The combination of alfalfa and unmolassed sugar beet pulp provides 'slow releasing' energy in the form of highly digestible fibre. Alfa-Beet is therefore ideal for weight gain without over-exuberance.
Alfa-Beet is ideal for older horses and ponies, where the provision of good quality protein is important and where maintaining condition is often a struggle. Dental problems? - no problem! Alfa-Beet is soaked to produce an easily digestible mash.
Alfalfa is naturally low in sugar (water soluble carbohydrates) and Alfa-Beet contains only a quarter of the water-soluble carbohydrates found in conventional molassed sugar beet. Fed with Dengie Hi-Fi Lite, Alfa-Beet is ideal for those horses and ponies, which require a lower sugar diet. Alfa-Beet is a suitable feed for the healthy maintenance of horses and ponies prone to laminitis and is approved by the Laminitis Trust.
Short Soak Time - Hot Soak in 15 mins!
Alfa-Beet is easy to use as it soaks to a mash much more quickly than conventional sugar beet pellets. For soaking, we recommend three parts water to one part Alfa-Beet.
One large Stubbs scoop of dry Alfa Beet pellets = 1.6Kg
One large Stubbs scoop of soaked Alfa-Beet holds 0.5kg of dry matter if soaked at a 3 parts water to 1 par Alfa-Beet ratio.
