Malt Pellets

malt residual pellets

  • Malt pellets are a combination of co-products of the maltings industry whereby the intake of malting barley is first screened before processing to remove fine grains. The larger grains are then dampened and allowed to sprout, a process which turns starch in the grain into sugars in the malt.

  • The process is stopped and the sprouts or rootlets (Malt Culms) removed and dried. The mixture of Malt Culms and Barley Screenings is then pelleted to produce the Malt Residual Pellets. At certain maltings, Culms are pelleted alone to produce a higher protein, but consequently lower energy feed.
