Okay I should of been more specific with my words, Non structural carbohydrates are sugars and for horses that have muscle disease, cushings, insulin resistance, should never be fed feeds that are higher then 10% NSC. Lots of people don't even know their horses might have these troubles until its too late and so its best to adopt a low starch feeding program. The Nutrena Rice bran is 26% NSC so way high, The Renew Gold is good cause its mixed with coolstance and is marketed for these type horses, its 10.6% and the Manna Pro does not list it and so you would have to contact the company. Regular rice bran that has nothing added and no fancy labels is around 30% and some have been tested even higher.
