We have a unique cereal cooking process in our feed mill. This process gives us extremely high levels (over 98%) of starch gelatinisation /cooking. It is currently the one and only animal feed cooking process on the island of Ireland capable of delivering such high levels of cooking.
Our process involves a unique steam pressure release treatment that effectively “pops” the grains, making them a lot more digestible. We have found this cooking to be beneficial in the diets of all stock but especially calves, lambs and non-ruminants. The Maize Nuggets we use as a signature ingredient of all Nugget rations are made using this process.
The greatest benefits to achieving such high levels of starch gelatinisation in a cereal cooking process are to be had in the nutrition of non – ruminants i.e. pig, poultry & pet diets.
