Linseed cakes or linseed flakes are the vegetable constituents of the pressed linseed from the production of linseed oil, which remain after the pressing. These plant press residues are by no means waste – quite the contrary, they are a very valuable and 100% natural feed for horses and other animals. After the pressing, linseed cake contains only a low oil content of approximately 12% to 14% which means it is easily digestible for the horses. Because of the cold pressing, linseed flakes show a higher digestibility and a higher yield than whole linseeds.
In the feeding of horses and ponies, linseed cakes are a healthy supplementary feed. High-quality and pure linseeds are used, from which the linseed oil and the are obtained as a by-product during a very gentle cold press procedure. Cold pressing has the advantage that the health-promoting and temperature-sensitive ingredients are preserved. Linseed cakes for horses are natural. They do not contain any preservatives, flavors or additives. Linseed cakes are easy to handle, they can be fed dry and do not need to be milled, cooked or soaked.
Linseed cakes contain valuable ingredients just like the whole linseed. Particularly advantageous are the high proportion of the polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid "alpha-linolenic acid", the high-quality vegetable protein and the valuable mucilage in the seed shell. In addition, linseed flakes contain lecithin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin E, folic acid (vitamin B9), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), antioxidants, minerals and amino acids, such as lysine.
