Starch and vegetable proteins are obtained from regionally-grown wheat. These wheat-based raw materials are produced in the EU, are GMO-free and, thanks to their proximity to the starch producers, generate low transport emissions.
The wheat grain has a high nutritional-physiological nutrient value and consists of about 70 per cent starch and 14 per cent protein with high-quality amino acids, in addition to unsaturated fatty acids, fibres, vitamins, and minerals.
With a recovery rate of 99 per cent, the starch industry achieves almost complete utilisation of the raw material, thereby guaranteeing efficient and resource-saving handling of this renewable resource.
The high-quality starch and protein products from domestically-sourced raw materials play an essential role in reducing the feed protein shortage in the EU. Wheat-based liquid feeds ensure balanced, nutrient-reduced feeding, while at the same time complying with environmental regulations such as the Fertiliser Ordinance.
Starch products can contribute to a longer shelf life for food, thereby counteracting food waste.
