Spent grains are a byproduct of ethynol production, distilling and beer brewing and consist of grain husks, pericarp and traces of endosperm. In terms of mass, spent grains are comprised of roughly half carbohydrates and the remainder being proteins and lignin.
This means that spent grains are considered a good source of protein and water-soluble vitamins in animal feed, as a fertilizer and as whole grains in bread. Employing Bonnot Company processing equipment — whether in compounding or in food-related applications — for the processing of spent grains ensures rapid mass production so the resulting product can be easily distributed or used again in another application.
