Wheat Bran Pellets are made from Wheat Bran, a by-product of flour and grits production, which predominantly consists of husks and variable proportions of the endosperm, by adding a suitable binder (e.g. 1-3% of molasses, fat or colloidal clays) and then pressing the composition under high pressure in pelletizing machines or extruders to form cylindrically shaped pellets.
Altogether, Wheat Bran possesses the nutritional aspects to be a solid starting point for any feed diet. Being rich in protein and fibre, this staple offers loads of energy as well as a positive effect on the overall feed intake, prove a reduced risk of rumen acidification in ruminants and provide positive effects on carcass fat reduction on in poultry.
Altogether, in ruminant diets, WBP is hard to ignore as a key component. At the same time, the products’ characteristics make it a worthwhile consideration in monogastric diets similarly. Typical effective inclusion of the product ranges from 20 percent in poultry diets and up to 25 – 30% in ruminant- or pig- and sow diets.
