Crude maize oil

Digestible source of energy | High unsaturated fatty acid profile

Concentrated and readily digestible source of energy, possessing a functionality and nutritional contribution particularly appreciated in pet food.

Introduction

Crude corn oil is a germ expeller oil and, as such, contains significantly more essential elements than simple seed oil.

Obtained from the fractionation of conventional maize that Roquette sources from Europe, crude corn oil is extracted from the germ by pressing. Roquette produces a crude corn maize equiring further refining

While animal fat is comprised mainly of saturated fatty acids (40-60%), corn oil has a high unsaturated fatty acid profile.

It is a concentrated and readily digestible source of energy, possessing a functionality and nutritional contribution.
