Flaxseed press cake as healthy horse fodder
Press cake is a by-product of the production process of brown flaxseed, also known as linseed, to flaxseed oil and is a high-quality feed supplement for horses. In veterinary medicine, it is used for its beneficial digestive and anti-inflammatory effects.
Our organic flaxseed press cake is obtained through cold-presssing of partly de-oiled flaxseeds. Cold-pressing at temperatures below 40 °C preserves the valuable ingredients most efficiently. The press cake is free from additives and contains valuable polyunsaturated fatty acids, especially omega-3 fatty acids and lignans. The press cake still contains around 10 g precious flaxseed oil per 100 g as well as approximately 36 g protein. Flaxseed press cake is rich in calories which makes it an ideal feed supplement for picky eating horses.
The essential fatty acids in the flaxseed press cake can have beneficial effects on the metabolism and the coat change of horses with feed-related deficiencies. At the same time, regular consumption of the press cake can lead to shinier fur. In the winter, it can reduce the amount of fat resources that the horse uses to maintain its body temperature. Furthermore, flaxseed press cake can strengthen the horse's immune system. The large amount of mucilage stimulates the intestine and can help prevent colics.
Also suitable for dogs
Our flaxseed press cake can also be used as feed supplement or treat for dogs with the result of a shinier fur. Not every dog eats the pellets as treat. Therefore, we recommend to mix them with dry or wet food.
Caution: Black cumin oil and cake are toxic for cats because, unlike horses and dogs, they cannot break down bitter substances entirely.
