Technical Document

Brief Overview

The primary protein that is derived from maize endosperm is corn gluten meal. It is one among the byproducts of wet milling maize, in addition to starch and corn oil. With a protein level of around 65%, corn gluten meal is high in protein and frequently used as animal feed. Moreover, corn gluten meal has use in agriculture.Production Method Wet-milling is a typical method of producing corn gluten meal.

Manufacturing Process

Wet-milling is a typical method of producing corn gluten meal. First, corn grains are soaked in sulfur dioxide-infused water in this procedure. Next, the mixture is coarsely processed in order to extract the endosperm and germ. Following this, the endosperm is ground and screened in order to separate the starch and gluten from the maize fiber. Finally, the starch and gluten are separated into their respective components by centrifuging them.

Animal Feed Industry

Owing to its superior digestibility and elevated protein content, corn gluten meal finds widespread application in animal feed and aquafeed. Pet food also contains corn gluten meal as an extra source of energy and protein. Fish, poultry, pigs, ruminants, and rabbits may all use it.

Agricultural Industry
