Wheat Bran



Brief Overview

Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) milling yields a high protein by-product that is suitable for broad classes of livestock and animal. Wheat bran can be served to cattle, poultry, sheep, pigs, and horses. Wheat bran is bulky, making it useful to lighten the feed mixture. Wheat bran can also be fused into the form of mashes.


Because of the high fiber level and its laxative effect, wheat bran is better not to be fed to young livestock

Manufacturing Process

Wheat bran is produced as a side product of milling of wheat into white flour. Wheat bran was sifted, washed, and dried at 180°C–200°C for 30–40 min and then ground. Wheat is usually milled by roller milling, which delivers multiple product streams that the miller can combine into flour or bran fractions. Thus, the composition of wheat bran from different mills varies significantly.
