Organic Stabilized Rice Bran

Hello!

I am a fan of organic, and was curious to see if anyone has found any organic stabilized rice bran in bulk?

I still have to call local feed stores, but after searching online for an hour or so, I haven't found a single place that sells it in bulk! I have seen some where they are in little 1-3 lb containers (like a supplement for humans), but that's not what I want. And these were insanely priced.

I know there are "All Natural" kinds like the MannaPro brand, however I am looking for organic. I am in the Midwest if that helps. Thanks for the help!

Along with being stabilized, it is very important the rice bran is calcium fortified.

The ratio of calcium to phosphorus is important in your horse

Or, you can Google the subject and get other credible hits

What about Rice Bran Oil?

You can add it to their feed

Organic products are very expensive so you might find the cost goes against it as a horse feed.
It is possible to buy organic rice bran oil - google it and you get quite a few results - but not cheap

You're welcome, but I had a reason for pointing you toward studying on the importance of a correct calcium/phosphorous ratio.

Rice bran is very high in phosphorous. It has to be balanced with added calcium.

Mineral imbalances cause problems in horses. If you can find an organic stabilized rice bran that's been calcium fortified, then you're good to go in the organic department.

If it hasn't been correctly balanced, I wouldn't feed it, unless I had it tested to know the phosphorous content so I could manually balance the calcium. That's a lot of monkey-fussing around.

If you're buying organic rice bran, you have most likely also found a supplier of organic hay as well, since that's far more important.

The horse probably should be dry-lotted so as to avoid any discrepancies in the pasture

Thanks! I have looked at that as well, but was curious if there actually was an organic stabilized rice bran. It doesn't seem to exist. Cost isn't an issue as long as it isn't insanely priced ($2+ a lb).

I figured this place would be the best place to ask, as I was hoping maybe someone had used or found one.

Thanks! I will call them on Friday as they are closed today. My guess is, it's not stabilized. I can find a lot of "Organic rice bran" but none say stabilized.

It's just so bizarre. A lot of people sell organic rice bran, but don't use the stabilization process on organic rice bran, only "all natural".

I found this Organic Vanilla Powder

It talks about organic SRB like it's one of their products. So I am hoping that works out. It almost seems like it is saying ALL stabilized rice bran is technically organic, but I'm not sure I'd believe that.

What are you feeding (besides a horse)? Walkin is right about the calcium/phosphorus ratio. You might be better off using flax seed.

If you buy it whole you can grind it in a coffee grinder as needed.
