Corn Co-Products Market Trends and Value Chain 2018 – 2028 by FMI

Corn co-products are the various components that are obtained from the distillation of the corn starch. The various product types of corn co-products are corn gluten meal, corn gluten feed, corn germ, corn oil, and distillers grain. But the products obtained from different extraction processes vary. Also, the corn co-products obtained are originally in the wet form/ paste, which is then dried to be sold to the various manufacturers. The corn co-products are used in various industries depending upon the various product types.

The corn oil is the only corn co-product that is used in the food processing industries in margarine, butter, etc. and in personal care and cosmetics in the skin care products. The other corn co-products such as corn gluten meal and the corn gluten feed are extracted from the wet milling process and is mainly used for animal feed. These corn co-products are high in demand due to the presence of crude protein which is beneficial to the animals. The distillers grain and the corn germ are also used as one of the ingredients in the feed products for cattle, poultry, marine animals, pets etc.

Majority of the Corn Co-Products Are Being Obtained by the Wet Milling Process

The dry milling process and the wet milling process of ethanol production both yield different kinds of corn co-products. From the dry milling process, the corn co-products obtained are distillers grain plus solubles whereas the corn gluten meal and feed, corn oil and corn germ are obtained from the wet milling process. The majority of the corn co-products are obtained from the wet milling process. The wet distillers grains plus solubles can either be marketed to be used as wet feed or it is dried and then sold. The storage and the transport of dry corn co-products are easier and thus is preferred more by the manufacturers and the consumers.

Commercially, the corn gluten feed and the corn oil meal has a very high value compared to the other corn co-products globally.
