Micronization is a patented process by which the grain's moisture and infrared heat is used to reconfigure the grain's structural matrix. This leads to increased feed efficiency, with greater than 90% of the grain's starch being digested in the small intestine. With such an increase in digestion in the small intestine, and hence the reduced burden on the large intestine, this leads to fewer incidences of acidosis, colic, laminitis, fatigue and nervousness.

The addition of organic chromium to performance horse diets has been shown to reduce the build up of lactic acid at the end of strenuous exercise or the closing stages of a race, and to increase the horse's ability to store glucose.
