PRESERVING FRESHNESS OF MILLED FLAX
If you grind whole flax seeds at home, you may notice that rancidity will begin within a few days if not refrigerated (evidenced by the paint-like aroma). While whole flax seed, on the other hand, is very stable.
Traditional milling processes involved crushing, rolling, burr mills and hammer mills - as their names suggest, all these methods are very aggressive, creating heat from the friction and rupturing the fat cells within the flax. Thus the flax is destabilized and the released fat/oil rapidly leads to rancidity.
HorseTech uses a Micronized milling process with their flax, which uses low temperature and a high speed cutter that SLICES the seeds so the fat remains intact within the meal.
Seed selection is also important as green seeds are prone to spoilage - and these are removed before milling.
The result is a milled flax that has not been damaged by heat and the fat cells haven't been ruptured, thus it is stable at room temperature, similar to whole flaxseed, for 2 years.

JINI SAYS: This is a very cool product in that it provides a great vegetarian source of DHA. So rather than feeding your horse fish oil, you can feed them this blend of algae-source DHA, along with flax and chia. Great supplements to support joint health, brain/cognitive function and known for their anti-inflammatory effect.
So you'll not only give your horse DHA but a good dose of anti-inflammatory Omega-3's AND the amino acids that are missing from a typical grass/hay diet. Natural Vitamin E is used to preserve the essential fatty acids in this blend, which gives your horse further protection against cognitive decline.
