What are NSCs?
NSCs are Non-Structural-Carbohydrates, which include sugar and starch. NSCs are mainly found in grains, as well as in sweet foods (i.e. molasses). NSCs provide energy to horses, but in high levels, they may cause metabolic chaos, namely colic, laminitis, poor temperament and ulcers. The accepted NSC level in feeds for most horses is 12-15%.
What is the alternative?
Research shows that oil is a suitable non-grain source of cool energy. One cup of oil is equivalent to about two and a half cups of grains in digestible energy. Not all oils are the same. There are saturated oils e.g. coconut oil - which uniquely contains high levels of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) for performance. There are also polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) which contain Omega 3, 6 and 9.
Oils must be balanced
Over consumption of hydrogenated and PUFA vegetable oils (eg. Soybean oil, maize oil etc.), in combination with grain can cause imbalanced Omega 3 and 6 levels. This may contribute to inflammation and increased circulating free radicals. These oils may also cause cellular acidity. Together this may impact on the efficiency of energy utilisation for performance, and also compromise the overall health of the animal long-term.
