Rapeseed Expeller...

As well as producing oil, the Cold Pressing process also produces a high quality animal feed supplement in the form of Rapeseed Expeller

When compared to standard solvent/heat extracted rape meal , Expeller cold pressed rape meal has higher levels of digestible amino acids such as Lysine, which is a vital building block in protein for livestock and poultry, playing a major role in muscle building and the production of hormones, enzymes and anti bodies.

Cold pressed rapeseed expeller contains typically between 11% and 12% oil, which is significantly higher than standard solvent/heat extracted rape meal, this higher content means that less amino acids such as lysine are required to be supplemented in an animals diet, and therefore reduces additional costs.

Studies have also shown that rape meal subjected to heat processing, has a negative impact on meal quality for mono gastrics, lysine in particular is affected by this heat.

Expeller gives an excellent start to cattle performance, combined with extra coat shine.

Protein efficiency ratio compares the total weight gain of a growing animal to the weight of protein consumed over the growing period. Based on this measure, cold pressed rape expeller has been shown to be superior to other plant based sources of protein such as soy and pea.
