Due to Saracen Horse Feeds’ precise formulation and manufacturing process, we are confident that our products go further than those of our competitors. We have always been convinced that you could feed less Saracen feed with the same or improved results.
We therefore put Saracen Cooling Mix plus Herbs up to the test and compared it to another leading cooling mix in a digestibility study conducted at a prestigious research centre.
The study concluded that Saracen Cooling Mix is nutritionally far superior to its competitors. Digestible energy content was 20% higher than one of the UK’s three most popular budget cooling mixes.
The difference was largely due to the nutrient composition of the two mixes. Saracen Cooling Mix was much higher in crude protein and soluble fibre and much lower in undesirable neutral detergent fibre than the competitor mix.

The Saracen mix was also more highly fortified with key minerals such as calcium and essential trace minerals such as iron, zinc, copper and manganese.
Because of its significant advantage in nutritional profile, Saracen Cooling Mix can be fed at an intake equal to 80% of the other leading brand, and still provide the same amount of calories and greater quantities of protein and minerals.
So, for every 20Kg bag of Saracen Cooling Mix, you would use 24Kg of another brand of feed.
Research trials such as this one are relevant not only because they demonstrate our commitment to quality but also because they support every horse owner’s reasonable expectation to purchase high quality, nutrient dense and cost effective feeds at a competitive price.
