Distillers Dried Grains with Solubles (DDGS)


Distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) is a valuable feed ingredient which is a coproduct of drymill ethanol production from grains. In ethanol production, the starch is fermentedto obtain ethyl alcohol, but the remaining components of the grain kernel (endosperm, germ),preserve much of the original nutritional value of the grain, including energy, protein and phosphorous. Drymill plants recover and recombine these components into a variety of animal feed ingredients. DDGS is a popular dried form of these combined components, available to customers as an ingredient for livestock and poultry rations.
