Triple Crown adds ButiPEARL™ Z EQ to all its feeds

11 June 2019 | Wayzata, Minnesota — Triple Crown Nutrition is leading the industry in horse nutrition as the first national equine-related feed company in America to add ButiPEARL™ Z EQ technology to all its feeds. ButiPEARL Z EQ (Kemin Industries, Des Moines, IA), is an encapsulated source of supplemental butyric acid and zinc, which helps strengthen the intestinal tract of the horse.

Currently, all of Triple Crown feeds currently contain EquiMix®, a unique blend of digestive aides and live prebiotics and probiotics to support immunity and promote gut health. ButiPEARL Z EQ is now part of EquiMix, which means it is also present in every bag of Triple Crown feed.

The encapsulation technology in ButiPEARL Z EQ allows for a sustained release of butyric acid and zinc through the upper and lower gut. The combination of zinc and butyric acid strengthens the lining of the gut, leading to improved nutrient absorption and a stronger barrier against pathogens, parasites and toxins. A healthy gut reduces the likelihood of Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS). It can also lead to improved performance and well-being. 

ButiPEARL Z EQ also contains essential peppermint oils, which offers enhanced aroma and flavor to the feed, and may have a calming effect and an anti-inflammatory benefit on a horses’ intestinal tracts.

“We are proud to be the first national equine feed brand to add this important supplement to all our feeds. We strive to always deliver on the latest advancements in horse nutrition and ButiPEARL Z EQ is another example of this,” said Triple Crown CEO Rob Daugherty.
