Wheat Bran is a byproduct generated while extracting flour from the Wheat Grain. Technically speaking there’s no product called Animal Feed Wheat Bran or Human Food Wheat Bran. When buyers use term called Animal Feed Wheat Bran, the producers use adulterants to reduce the cost of the product and offer the price for the same. Using adulterants based wheat bran may harm animal and birds as well. This is the basic reason for major price difference in different suppliers. Our Wheat Bran that is free of impurities and 100% safe to consume. We offer three kinds of wheat bran namely Coarse, Fine and Superfine. Processed as per the food industry standards, this is extremely acknowledged for its high nutritional value, purity and long shelf life. Our Wheat Bran is rich in starch, protein, vitamins, and dietary fiber.
Wheat bran, a by-product of the dry milling of common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) into flour, is one of the major agro-industrial by-products used in animal feeding. It consists of the outer layers (cuticle, pericarp, and seedcoat) combined with small amounts of the starchy endosperm of the wheat kernel. Other wheat processing industries that include a bran removal step may also produce wheat bran as a separate by-product: pasta and semolina production from durum wheat (Triticum durumDesf.), starch production and ethanol production. Wheat brans can be used as effective replacements for guinea corn and maize which are more expensive and less nutritious in broiler feed production.

-High absorbency – keeping bedding dry, improving bacteria control. -Odour control – binding the smell of ammoniac. -Regular wheat-straw pellets are virtually dust free. -Environment friendly – the waste can be used as an excellent fertilizer. Short -compost time – carbon neutral in 1 year. -Reduce the storage space needed for bedding. -Faster and easier clean up – require less effort, less material used for scattering, and less effort mucking .
Features of Wheat Bran For Animal Feed
Milling yields variable proportions of flour, depending on the quality of the final product. The extraction rate (flour: grain ratio) goes from 100% for a wholemeal flour to less than 70% for pastry flour. Typical extraction rates range from 75% to 80%, resulting in 20 to 25% wheat offal
Wheat bran represents roughly 50% of wheat offals and about 10 to 19% of the kernel, depending on the variety and milling process
In the industrial milling process, after a cleaning step that removes grain impurities, the grains are tempered (soaked to toughen the outer layers and mellow the starchy endosperm in order to facilitate their separation) and then subjected to a series of grinding operations that produce finer and finer flour particles.
The first grinding steps yield coarse particles of broken wheat and bran, and the later steps produce other by-products.
Milling by-products are traditionally named after their quality (fineness, color, etc.) and/or the stage of the process at which they arose, with considerable variations between languages, countries, regions, milling processes, and even mills.
In industrial countries, these products used to be sold separately (coarse bran, fine bran, middlings, second clear, thirds, etc.) but are now mixed together in variable proportions
Consequently, wheat milling offals form a continuum of products with a decreasing fiber: starch ratio, from the fibrous coarse brans produced by the first grinding steps to starchy feed-grade flours.
Wheat brans sold for animal feeding are typically mixtures of true coarse brans and finer products from the later grinding stages. In rural and traditional milling, flour is directly separated from the bran in one-step milling and screening.
This type of bran has a higher starch content and a higher nutritive value.
