Wheat is one of the oldest cultivated plants on earth and one of the most important agricultural commodities. Wheat is grown on 220 million hectares worldwide and is the most widely grown cereal in the world. In Germany alone, wheat is grown on about half of the existing grain areas . The majority of our wheat comes from German fields, the rest from the EU. Always a quality product, always 100 % GMO free. What makes it so valuable for humans, animals and the industry? Its unique composition! A wheat grain consists of 70 % wheat starch and 14 % wheat proteins, with high-quality amino acids as well as unsaturated fatty acids, fibres, vitamins, and minerals. The individual ingredients are important, qualitative components in the production of food, animal feed, feed and industrial products.
Wheat is our basis for the development of high-performance products. We make full use of the grain corn’s ingredients, utilising all of its constituent parts. because each constituent part has its own properties and possible applications.
The wheat starch, for example, forms resistant, solid gels, is highly stable during processing and can be used in various ways in both the food and non-food sectors.
Wheat protein (gluten), is particularly important for its baking properties and also improves the nutritional quality of food.
