Dried Distillers Grain (DDGS)
U.S. DDGS is a high quality, viable feed ration alternative.
Distiller's dried grains with solubles are the dried residue remaining after the starch fraction of corn is fermented with selected yeasts and enzymes to produce ethanol and carbon dioxide. After complete fermentation, the alcohol is removed by distillation and the predominant co-product produced and available to the global feed industry is DDGS. The production of DDGS has increased dramatically over the past 10 years and the total amount produced in 2011 was approximately 35 million metric tons.
Distillers grains are rich in cereal proteins, fat (energy), minerals, and vitamins. They are an excellent source of digestible protein and energy.
DDGS is most often shipped bulk in 20’ or 40’ containers.
We can also arrange for packaging in 50KG bags or 1MT totes when ordered in quantities of 5 x 20’ container lots.
The United States is the world's largest producer and exporter of DDGS with an estimated production in 2013 of nearly 39 Million MT’s.
