Food & Animal feed


CropEnergies markets the DDGS from the bioethanol plant in Zeitz throughout Europe under the brand name ProtiGrain®. There is a strong demand for this high-grade animal feed, which is used as an ingredient in compound feeds or can be fed directly to cattle, from customers both at home and abroad. It stands out for its good digestibility, balanced protein/energy ratio and excellent tastiness.
The 6 mm pellet size is suitable for compound mixes with other pellets or as direct feed for cattle. An important factor for its quality is also the gentle, indirect drying of the product at relatively low temperatures (under 100 degrees Celsius).
While the focus at first was on feeding cattle, ProtiGrain® has very quickly come to be used also in the rations for growing-finishing pigs where it is used proportionally as a substitute for soy meal extract. ProtiGrain® is meanwhile an interesting component also in poultry feeds and pet foods.
ProtiGrain® is marketed throughout Europe, with the focus on Germany and the countries directly adjoining it. Our customer portfolio includes all well-known manufacturers of high-quality animal feeds and pet foods.
