Omega 3 and Omega 6

Posted by Valley View Animal Feeds on December 5, 2015 at 5:15 AM

Raw freshly ground carob crumb (not roasted or cooked) is classed as a super food and contains a perfect balance of 6:1 ratio of omega 6 fatty acids and omega 3 fatty acids and is far superior to most nuts and seeds. More importantly You need the EPA and DHA forms of omega-3 to promote proper body function. How much EPA and DHA are in linseed? NONE.

What Linseed does contain is alpha-linolenic acid, which has to be converted to EPA and DHA to be of any use in your body. Your body only converts a very small amount of alpha-linolenic acid to the kinds of omega-3s you need, if it’s able to convert it at all Ref: Al Sears MD

Research undertaken by Agricultural and Food Chemistry has shown that carob pods have a high amount of polyphenols. Which helps protect the immune system and helps  eliminate toxins from the animals body.

Raw ground carob crumb (containing the whole raw carob pod including seeds) The tannins in whole raw carob pods are known to bind to toxins and have an astringent (derives from Latin adstringere, meaning "to bind fast") effect in the gastrointestinal tract which makes them very useful for treating lose stools.

Our REAL Carob crumb is made from freshly harvested and selected whole carob pods and ground freshly everyday here on our farm in Cornwall, it has not been heat treated to 400°F or mixed with vegetable oils, soy lecithin or linseed meal, and is 100% natural and pure.

OMG - My mare was always fizzy especially after her micronized linseed feed, stopped using it and she is a different horse. Spoke to my local feed merchant and they couldn't guarantee it didn't contain toxins. Big shock! There must be a link with linseed and moody mares??
