Micronized Maize

High quality Micronized Maize, with increased gelatinisation of starch. Gelatinised starch has significantly greater susceptibility to amylase degradation than raw starch; gelatinised starch disappears at an increased rate from the rumen - both as bypass carbohydrate and due to microbial utilisation; ileal digestibility is greater than raw starch, across species, and less starch is available for hind gut fermentation.

All species benefit from increased productivity - improved growth , production and  feed conversion. Micronized maize has special implications where small intestine amylase production is low (young livestock, companion animals, horses) and where hind gut production of short chain fatty acids are undesirable.

Suitable for all diets. Recommended for high performance diets and young animal diets. Suitable for horses. Suitable for companion animals/ small pets etc.

Particularly useful in young animal diets, but ideal for any age.
