Independent Test Lab for DDG Color of Dried Distillers Grain?

FAQ: “Do you know of a test lab for DDG Color of Dried Distillers Grain?

DDG stands for ‘Dried Distillers Grain”. While its origins are based on evaluation of the residual protein content of wheat and corn for cattle feed that had been used in the distillation of whiskey, bourbon and spirits, it has moved on from distillers to serve the same purpose for the biofuels industry.

In addition to DDG Color testing indicative of residual protein content, other quality parameters also tested are amino acid and mycotoxin content; presence of antibiotic residues; trace mineral content and wet chemical analyses for crude protein, fat, fiber and moisture.
