DDGS is a by-product of the ethanol production process and has high nutrient feed valued, suitable for the livestock industry. When ethanol plants produce ethanol, they use starch only from input grains like rice, corn, mullets or wheat. After starch extraction, the byproduct contains – protein, fiber, oil and essential amino acids suitable for livestock feed allied Dried Distillers Grains with Solubles.

The following attributes have made DDGS one of the most popular feed ingredients for use in animal feeds around the world:
1. The high energy, mid-protein, and high digestible phosphorus content of DDGS make it a very attractive, partial replacement for some of the more expensive feed sources:
- Traditional energy (Corn)
- Protein (Soybean Meal)
- Phosphorus (mono or di-calcium phosphate) used in animal feeds.
2. When DDGS is added to properly formulated feeds, it results in:
- Excellent animal health
- Food product quality
- Lower ration cost
