Horses consuming high-starch meals experience elevated levels of circulating interleukin 1b (IL-1b)—a potent proinflammatory mediator. This might be particularly problematic in older and overweight horses, which have higher inflammatory protein levels in their resting state.

This finding was not unexpected but suggests that older and overconditioned horses might benefit from diets lower in starch and sugar.
