How To Get The Most Out Of Feeding With Dengie Hi-Fi Lite

Hi-Fi Lite is ideal as the sole bucket feed for horses and ponies that are overweight and prone to laminitis. It can be fed alongside a broad-spectrum supplement or a feed balancer to provide a balanced diet. Where additional condition is needed, or for those horses with a higher energy requirement, Dengie Alfa-Beet or Alfa-A Lite can be added.

Hi-Fi Lite can also be fed as a hay replacer. Naturally lower in sugar than hay, Hi-Fi Lite can be fed on a weight for weight basis as a low sugar alternative to hay or haylage.

Hi-Fi Lite is a short ‘chop’ that takes as long to chew as the equivalent weight of hay or haylage, helping to keep horses occupied and satisfied. For horses on restricted grazing, Hi-Fi Lite is ideal as it delivers sufficient fibre to maintain gut function.

Respiratory Care

The alfalfa in Hi-Fi Lite is dried at a very high temperature which reduces mould. Extraction processes help to reduce the dust content to promote respiratory health.

Dengie Message

Feed Safety & Quality

Ensuring quality, safety and sustainability
Everyone at Dengie is proud of our connection with the land and we are always mindful that we need to grow our crops as sympathetically as possible both for the benefit of our customers and to ensure the future sustainability of what we do. Our farmers are family farmers and they want to ensure there is a viable future for generations to come.

A Commitment to Quality

There are a number of organisations that Dengie are accredited with as part of our commitment to quality:

Feed Assurance Schemes

UFAS and FEMAS are voluntary schemes developed in response to demand for improved feed and food safety. Approval under the schemes provides independent verification that a company is meeting its legal obligations under general feed law. Dengie are approved under both UFAS and FEMAS as we grow and produce our own raw material.

The schemes are based on HACCP principles, an internationally recognized system of hazard analysis pioneered by space agency NASA. Over recent years HACCP has become a central requirement of Food and Feed safety legislation.


In 2009 the British Equestrian Trade Association introduced a code of practice relating to naturally occurring prohibited substances (NOPS). The aim of the code of practice is to identify those manufacturers who demonstrate due diligence in reducing the risk of contamination with NOPS. Due to the nature of some NOPS it is no longer possible to offer a guarantee that a product is free from them. Those companies that do are unlikely to be fully aware of the potential risks of contamination. Dengie are approved under the NOPS scheme. If you require more information about NOPS then please contact us on 01621841188 or send us an e-mail.

Use of GM Materials

No GM raw materials are used in our feeds and so they are suitable for feeding to horses kept on organic holdings or for those supplying muck to organic holdings.
