Improved functionality of the animal feed with pregelatinised wheat flours.

The special feature of Trigea’s pregelatinised flour is found in the thermal treatment by extrusion. Thanks to the manufacturing process, they already develop their binding properties in cold processes. In terms of process and product optimisation, our extruded pregelatinised wheat flours Trigovit® Flour have an optimising effect in the applications, because Trigovit® Flour gives the end-consumer product its desired functionality. Especially snacks like chewing sticks for dogs or the production of flake food for ornamental fish can be optimised with Trigovit® Flour product solutions.

Key properties of extruded and thermal wheat pregelatinised wheat flours:

  • Good dispersibility in water
  • Very good water absorption (up to 1:6)
  • Very good fat binding (up to 1:2)
  • Binding agent and carrier material, e.g. of fat-containing products
  • Cold-swelling
  • High binding capacity
  • Stabilises and solidifies doughs and emulsions

Exemplary application areas of extruded and thermal pregelatinised wheat flours:

  • Binder for cold-pressed dry feed
  • Puppy and kitten milk
  • Semi-moist snacks
  • Moist feed chunks
  • Chewing bones
  • Viscosity adjustment in the process
  • Optimised press runability and simultaneously increase production efficiency

Extruded, thermally treated Trigovit® Flour pregelatinised wheat flours:

Trigovit® Flour is suited as a pregelatinised wheat flour for various applications in animal feed. They are particularly well-suited for snacks. In terms of process and product optimisation, our pregelatinised Trigovit® Flours have an optimising effect in applications. Both the viscosity in production and the texture of the end-consumer product can be adjusted with the flours.

Application of pregelatinised wheat flours in snacks for semi-moist snacks, extruded chewing bones and moist feed chunks

  • Very good solubility and can be stirred in cold-swelling
  • High binding capacity (binds even difficult raw materials such as spirulina or glycerine)
  • Extends the freshness of chewing products
  • Gives chewing products the desired flexibility and pliability
  • Stabilises and solidifies doughs and emulsions
  • Very good water absorption (up to 1:6)
  • Very good fat binding (up to 1:2)
  • Binding agent and carrier material, e.g. of fat-containing products

Application of pregelatinised flours in dry feed:

With wheat-based products by the producer Trigea, high-quality nutrients are added to dry feed, thereby providing balanced animal feed | Crespel & Deiters
  • Trigovit® Flour is an easily digestible carbohydrate source due to its broken down starch
  • Binder for cold-pressed dry feed

Application of pregelatinised flours in puppies and kitten milk:

For the healthy development of young animals, the composition of nutrients for puppy and kitten milk, adapted to the needs of the animals, is crucial. Trigovit® Flour is an easily digestible, vegetable carbohydrate source for young animals.

  • Easily digestible carbohydrate
  • Rapidly available energy, thanks to broken down starch
  • Optimum solubility against lump formation
  • Very good water absorption (1:6)
  • Ideal as a binding agent and carrier

Application of pregelatinised wheat flours in ornamental feed:

The choice of the right raw materials is also crucial when producing flake feed for ornamental fish. Both the viscosity in production and the texture of the end-consumer product can be adjusted with the flours.

  • Optimises machine compatibility
  • Increases product efficiency
  • Improves viscosity and texture
