Maize Germ/Corn Germ
Corn germ is an attractive medium protein and energy ingredient for many ruminant applications that offers a suitable alternative protein source for swine and poultry due to its rich digestible amino acids. At HL Agro, the Corn Germ is processed using the latest milling techniques resulting in pure, quality-checked and oil-rich germ.
Maize germ is a high energy digestive feed offering a good source of ‘slow release’ starch. Germ is one of the ingredients of the maize which is separated in maize crushing process. Corn germ is the embryo of the kernel found in its centre and is comprised of fat (50%), starch (14%) and protein (13%). The germ can be processed into corn oil, which can then be further processed into cooking oil, margarine, mayonnaise, salad dressing, soaps and a variety of other products.
Corn Germ, in its natural form, is a yellow coloured seed that is free from rancidity, insects, fungus and harmful constituents. This is valuable by-product being rich in oil. It has a pleasant nutty taste when fresh but can quickly become rancid if not procured within a short time after milling. Corn oil contains a high level of polyunsaturated fats, which is effective in lowering cholesterol levels as compared to animal fats. After the extraction of the corn oil from the germ, the residue is used in corn germ meal as animal feed primarily for pigs and poultry.
