Balanced Equine Nutrition, Monosodium phosphate MSP
Monosodium phosphate (MSP) is a quality source of phosphorus for horses – human food grade – 22.5% phosphorus
An ideal way to supplement phosphorus without adding additional calcium. Especially useful for intakes that are already high in calcium. Very low iron, recommended by Dr Eleanor Kellon VMD.
Small: net weight = 2.9 kg
Large: net weight = 4.9 kg
10 grams will provide 2.25 grams phosphorus
Phosphorus along with calcium and magnesium are known as the major minerals. Copper, zinc, iron, manganese, selenium and iodine are trace minerals. In a horse’s nutrient intake, either phosphorus can be at too low a level compared to the NRC (National Research Council) daily recommendations AND/OR the calcium to phosphorus ratio can be too high. Whichever one applies, the diet won’t be optimal.
There is no standard recommended feeding rate.

The easiest and best way to know what your horse’s intake is deficient in, or what is excessive and out of balance, is to test what your horses eat – pasture or hay.
