If you mix the grains with oil rather than molasses, you can get a "sweet feed" looking mix. We have diverted to calling it a "ration" rather than a sweet feed. Low glycemic would be anything with a glycemic index or starch level around 14% or lower.
Unfortunatley our website does not do our equine feeding program a lot of justice....I"m working on changing that!!! Although we have soooo many benefits and resources to offer our equine customers, the equine division has not previously been a priority. We are currently very strong into a hog feeding program that is called "humane hog" which is an antibiotic free program where the hogs have to be raised in a humane environment. We probably do over 500 tonne a month for that. (Go figure, they get slaughtered in Quebec and the meat goes to Japan).
I am looking forward to continuing the growth of our horse feed division, and I would love to be associated with your website.
Current research has allowed us to formulate low glycemic (starch) sweet feeds. Unfortunately, there are few companies that will put the effort into sourcing the grains and ingredients needed to make a chemical free "organic" type feed. Fortunately for me, I work at the only mill in Ontario that is drug free, antibiotic free, prohibited materials free EU and organic certified. All of our horse feed gets made at our facility, and it feels amazing to be able to offer products like the ones you are talking about. I think the feed industry (and the consumers - horse owners) needs to start following this path for healthier horses in the future. Kudos to you for sticking with it!!!
