Saracen Superioats are a modern development of the traditional cereal, referred to generically as 'naked oats' because they are husk-less. Unlike conventional oats, the husk separates from the kernel during harvesting, leaving a very clean grain. Because the husk is the major source of variability, the levels of nutrients, in particular the oil content, are greatly improved. Consequently, the levels of feed must be reduced accordingly to make allowances for their concentrated values. The feeding of dietary fat holds exceptional promise as a method of increasing dietary intake, without increasing the volume of feed required. Researchers have repeatedly demonstrated the horse's ability to digest and utilise fats efficiently, therefore assisting the horse in reaching their performance potential. Furthermore, it appears that adding fat to the exercising horse's diet has a sparing effect on muscle glycogen reserves and, if the horse can be conditioned to, using fat as a fuel source from the onset of training, the muscle will be more effective at using both fats and glycogen for energy.
