Product description

Corn steeping water for insect nutrition

is produced during the extraction of starch from corn. It is the liquid fraction in which the maize kernels have been soaked and therefore contains the soluble parts of the maize kernel. The fraction is evaporated and increased to 40 to 50 percent dry matter. The product can be used as a feed ingredient or as part of corn gluten feed. The co-product Corn steeping water contains high levels of phosphorus, sodium and potassium, hence the limited inclusion in the ration.

Quality

The product complies with laws and regulations. Mycotoxins, insecticides, pesticides and herbicides are tested according to the GMP+ FSA. The product is non-GMO (according to Regulation (EC) 1829/2003 and 1830/2003).
