A Clear View of Fat - Types, Sources, and Benefits
Not all fat is created equal. You may be adding fat to your horse's diet to provide more calories, or to replace starch, but the type of fat can significantly impact your horse's health. Some improve immune function, reduce inflammation, and promote healing. Others can have the exact opposite effect.
The terminology can be confusing -- monounsaturated, omega 3s, DHA, polyunsaturated, rancidity, steroids, phospholipids, eicosanoids, cholesterol, omega 6s, trans fat, hydrogenation -- the list is long. What do these terms mean? Do they affect your horse? What fatty sources contain them and which do not? What's the difference between oils -- is corn oil the same as soybean oil? Is rice bran a good source of fat? Or, is coconut oil better?
What about how much fat to feed? Do some horses do better on fat? Should fat be avoided for some?
So many questions and lots of answers. Spend time with Dr. Juliet Getty and learn about this somewhat complex topic, in an easy to understand format. You'll be empowered by your new knowledge, better able to read labels, and make intelligent choices for your horse.
