    Questions about this Study

    I recently read an article online related to this study at I have a couple of questions concerning the accuracy of the study claiming that sugars are reduced by soaking hay in water.

    First, I'd like to know if there has there been any test performed on sun-dried hay or on still wet hay? I would like to know how long the hay was placed in the oven, what temp was used and what was the oven convection type ?...
