Hi Jody

The beauty of this group is in the way that everyone keeps you factual. Let me correct my previous message....simple sugars are is digested primarily in the small intestine.

In any event, it's not about fructans.  :-)

Hope you have lots of spring at your place, Jody.

Fructan is not the issue with our horses.  The issue  for our metabolic horses, indeed 880-90 percent of all laminitis cases, is sugar and starch digested in the stomach causing a glycemic response, primary a rise in insulin.
