Rice Bran Oil - your natural advantageAs the name suggests rice bran oil is derived from rice grain, or more specifically, from the bran layers of the kernel. The bran is left over from the process used to produce white rice for human consumption. The oil is then extracted from the bran by a process which protects the integrity of the nutrients. In the case of HYGAIN® RBO-elite the oil is then further refined by a method which also deodorises and enhances the palatability of the product.
The advantages of feeding oil to horses:-
Dietary fats are known as triglycerides as there are 3 fatty acid molecules attached to one glyceride molecule. These fatty acids can be either saturated or unsaturated. There can be considerable variation in the size or length of the fatty acids. Fats with unsaturated and/or short fatty acids tend to be in a liquid sate at room temperature and are referred to as oils. Conversely, longer chains of fatty acids that are saturated are usually solid at room temperature and are referred to as fats. Therefore, in order to maximise absorption and feed efficiency it is highly desirable to feed unsaturated fats (oils) to horses.
