Maize

Maize has an energy value superior to other cereals thanks to its high starch and fat content. Its low fiber content gives it a higher digestibility coefficient than other cereals such as barley and wheat, particularly in monogastric livestock. Maize is also a good source of vitamin A, along with hydroxy carotenoids and xanthophylls that contribute color to chicken meat and egg yolk.

Whole maize

Maize is a major ingredient of concentrates around the world due to its high energy value, excellent palatability, limited variability in chemical composition, and minimal anti-nutritional factors.

Maize meal

Maize meal is widely used in feeds for ruminant and monogastric livestock. It is particularly recommended for use with ruminants, as the ruminal fermentation potential of the starch increases with improved exposure to microbial digestion; and with swine, which do not chew during ingestion.
