Consistency is a corner stone of Pannonia Gold and Pannonia DCO. We do extensive testing and monitoring throughout our production chain, ensuring we attain the highest level of quality and consistency.
Consistency leads to increased predictability and, in turn, reduces the risk of nutritional deficiencies, allowing for reduced safety margins. There are definite cost benefits to be gained by reducing safety margins.
DDGS production process
Bioproducts, produced by Pannonia Bio are made from locally-sourced feed grade corn.
Every batch of corn is tested upon entering our facility.
milling / separation
The waterproof layer of corn kernels is broken down allowing access to starches.
Fibre particles are separated into a separated stream.
Simple sugar forms from the starch during the brewing process.
Hot water and enzymes are added to the mash.
The fermentation process lasts for approximately 65 hours at 35 degrees Celsius.
Fermentation is completed by reaching a 15% v/v alcohol content.
During the separation, the solid fraction is separated and transferred to the dryer. The liquid fraction is evaporated to extract the valuable corn oil sold under the brand name Pannonia DCO.
Wet distillers grain gets into a drum and gets dehydrated due to the hot air, reaching the final stage of the process.
The final product, Pannonia Gold DDGS is forwarded to the on-site storage facility.
DDGS is loaded to trucks, wagons or barges with the use of telescopic loaders and bulk scales, following transfers via the conveyor belt system.
