CORN GLUTEN PELLETS - Corn gluten pellets are also known as gluten feed pellets. These pellets are obtained from gluten feed (residues from starch production from wheat and corn, such as husks and gluten particles) by adding a suitable binder (e.g. 1 - 3% of molasses, fat or colloidal clays) and then pressing the composition under high pressure in pelletizing machines or extruders to form cylindrically shaped pellets. From a transportation standpoint, pellets generally have the same characteristics as the original plant residues, in particular in terms of the product's oil and water content. A distinction is drawn between expeller pellets and extraction meal pellets depending on their origin. See also Alfalfa Pellets.
