Dried Distillers Grains

Dried Distillers’ Grain (DDG) is a plant-based, high protein livestock feed supplement, suitable for ruminants, pigs, poultry and horses. It is produced as a co-product from ethanol production from grain.

Ethanol production from grain involves the conversion of starch to alcohol (ethanol) through fermentation.DDG is a course, dark-coloured granular powder made from the condensing and drying of protein stillage to approx 10% moisture content.

The nutrient composition of DDG depends on the type, variety and quality of the grain used. Stance DDG is derived from Australian wheat.
