Hygain® Micrbeet® is high in soluble fibre and low in sugar, suitable for all equines regardless of age and use.

MICRBEET® has the outstanding feature of providing digestible energy ranging between good quality hay and grains in the form of soluble fibre as opposed to sourcing energy from starches and sugars.

  • High in soluble fibres to maintain a healthy gut.
  • Increases the caloric content and energy density in the diet.
  • Encourages intake of less palatable feeds, ideal for the fussy eaters.
  • High fibre, low starch formula ideal for horses prone to metabolic related issues.
  • Provides calm conditioning ideal for excitable horses.
  • Soak in water to create a mash that provides an adequate fibre substitute for dentally challenged equines.

As a supplemental fibre source when fed with premixed feeds and hay*
HYGAIN® MICRBEET® can be fed as an addition to your horse’s premixed feed/grains and roughage. HYGAIN® MICRBEET® can also be used as a top dressing to encourage the intake of less palatable feeds.

Grazing should be restricted and the soaking of hay is recommended for equines prone to starch/sugar related conditions (e.g.: laminitis, grain intolerance, cushings etc.). HYGAIN® MICRBEET® may also be used in conjunction with HYGAIN ZERO® the unique low Carb – low GI formula providing the required balance of daily nutrients in the diet.
