*Farrier’s Formula does not contain added sugar or molasses. The daily intake of starches, carbohydrates (WSC and NFC), and sugars from Farrier’s Formula is very low, and is insignificant relative to the starch, sugar and carbohydrate intake in the total diet.
**The iron content in Farrier’s Formula is derived from the pellet conditioner (hydrated sodium calcium aluminosilicate, natural clay) in the form of iron oxide. The intestinal absorption of iron from iron oxide is minimal; therefore Farrier’s Formula provides a minimal and insignificant amount of absorbable iron. If iron supplementation is desirable another form of iron such as iron proteinates, or other bio-available sources of iron should be utilized.
***Farrier’s Formula does not contain added potassium; however potassium is contained in minor concentrations with some of the ingredients such as alfalfa. Considering the small amount of product, the total level of potassium intake from Farrier’s Formula relative to the intake in the total diet is not significan
