Yes, Meta Safe® contains very low starch levels that are ideal for horses suffering from EMS, Laminitis and Cushings. Alongside low starch/sugar roughage and feeding at the correct feeding rate of your horse/pony, Meta Safe® is a safe, fully fortified, feed option.
Meta Safe® is a concentrated feed meaning you can feed less and still meet all of your horse's vitamin and mineral requirements, alongside their roughage. This makes Meta Safe® perfect for the good doing horse! If you find you have a VERY good doing horse, consider a vitamin and mineral supplement such as Allcare™ in place of a feed.

Meta Safe® is a concentrate feed wheras Zero® is considered a 'full feed'. This means they have different feeding rates. A concentrate feed has a low feeding rate which is designed to meet vitamin and mineral requirements of a horse in a small quantity. This makes Meta Safe® perfect for a good doer.
Meta Safe® and Balanced® are both concentrated options. Differences include:
Starch content: Meta Safe® contains a very low starch content of <1.5% whereas Balanced® is a low starch content at 6%.

This means that Allcare™ has a very small feeding rate which does not provide the same level of protein as what Meta Safe® does with a higher feeding rate. Allcare™ also contains a mycotoxin binder, probiotic and an elevated level of biotin.
