The original, research proven stabilized rice bran conditioning supplement.

EQUI-JEWEL is a scientifically formulated, high-fat low-starch and cool-energy feedstuff with added Vitamin E, selenium and calcium.

EQUI-JEWEL is the original, research proven stabilised rice bran conditioning supplement and the only conditioning supplement that offers the combination of high fat with minimal levels of oxidisation, low starch and an effective amount of digestible fibre.

EQUI-JEWEL is specifically designed to nutritionally support the equine athlete by providing a highly palatable form of additional calories and protein to assist in building muscle, topline and maintaining condition.


The Original Stabilised Rice Bran

Rice bran is the brown outer layer of the rice grain, the part that we remove to yield white rice.

The bran portion of rice is one of the most nutritious parts of the kernel. It is an excellent source of fat, thiamine, niacin, vitamin B-6, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium and fibre.

For horses, one of the best things about rice bran is that it contains a high level of fat and low level of starch and is a wonderful addition to the diet where a high fat intake is desirable.

What is Stabilised Rice Bran?

Removal of the bran from rice releases an enzyme called lipase which oxidises fat and turns the oil in rice bran rancid. The oxidation of the fat occurs very quickly especially in warmer weather and results in a ‘soapy’ after-taste which can be quite unpalatable to all but the greediest of horses.

The rancid bran also contains damaging free radicals and reactive oxidative species. Subjecting the rice bran to heat and pressure (stabilisation) soon after its separation from the rice grain destroys the lipase. Without the destructive lipase enzyme, the fat content of rice bran (18-20%) is stabilised and this gives EQUI-JEWEL its proven palatability and long shelf life.

EQUI-JEWEL is a stabilised rice bran supplement, ensuring premium quality and palatability.

  • The low feeding rate and high digestibility provides for an economical calorie supplement.
  • The benefit of rice bran for conditioning and muscle building.
  • Stabilised and extruded to lock in the fat content, increase shelf life and prevent oxidation.
  • Contains essential fatty acids for healthy skin and a naturally shiny coat.
  • Contains added calcium to balance the high phosphorus ratio found naturally in rice bran and other commonly fed brans or pollards.
  • Supplies the powerful anti-oxidants, natural Vitamin E and organic selenium.

Uses
  • To supplement the diets of horses requiring additional calories to maintain performance and condition.
  • To increase body condition, muscle, topline and coat condition in show, sale and performance horses.
  • As a safe alternative energy source for horses requiring a low-carbohydrate diet such as those prone to tying-up or laminitis.
  • A ‘cool’ source of calories for horses that heat up on grain.
  • A source of natural Vitamin E and organic selenium to assist with muscle recovery in performance horses and promote healthy immune function.
  • For horses at risk of gastric ulceration or colic.
  • A slow release energy source for horses competing over long distances or endurance competitions.
