Physical Properties and Functionality


100% Corn Protein Concentrate

Description (AAFCO 48.89)

Corn Protein Concentrate is the dried proteinaceous fraction of the corn primarily originating from the endosperm after removal of the majority of the non-protein components by enzymatic solubilization of the protein stream obtained from the wet-milling process. The proteinaceous fraction of the corn must contain not less than 80% protein on a moisture free basis and not more than 1% starch on a moisture free basis. The product must be labeled on an 'as fed' basis. This fraction shall be free of fermented corn extractives, corn germ meal, and other non-protein components except in such amounts as might occur unavoidably in agood manufacturing processes.
