Keep an eye on fat concentrations in DDGS

By Dr. Hans H. Stein

March 2010

Many companies that are producing DDGS have started to centrifuge or skim off the fat from the DDGS. These companies then sell the fat for biodiesel production at a price that is much greater than what they can usually obtain for DDGS. The consequence of this practice is that the concentration of fat in DDGS is reduced from 10 to 11% in conventional DDGS to between 6 and 8 % in the centrifuged low-fat DDGS. This DDGS has a reduced concentration of energy and has, therefore, also a reduced value when fed to livestock. Conventional DDGS with 10 to 11% fat has a concentration of digestible energy that is similar to that in corn. However, if the concentration of fat in DDGS is reduced by 3 to 5% then the energy value of that product is reduced considerably.
