UPDATE FROM EQUINE AMERICA.
Magnitude – slight colour change – but the same great product, now with even more quality assurance! We are pleased to confirm that that there is no difference in the magnesium levels, or the chemical source of the magnesium used (magnesium oxide – MgO), only in the physical form of MgO we are now using.
This change in physical form (to the slightly more granular form, with a pale beige colour) has arisen because we are delighted to report that we are now manufacturing the Equine America (UK) products in the UK, using certified facilities with the highest standards of safety and production. Although Equine America (UK) products have always been free from prohibited substances, our new UFAS and BETA NOPS certifications will provide further reassurance in the light of the recent high profile prohibited substances cases, giving our customers peace of mind regarding FEI, BEF and BHA prohibited substances, enabling full traceability.
In order to comply with the rules and regulations regarding these certifications, we are only able to use certain suppliers, who are also certified, and have had to make a change to our supply of magnesium oxide, so we are now using the lower dust, slightly granular form, which is pale beige.
