CHF 2’100.00 per person / 1 week

During the milling process, about 70 to 75% of the grain becomes flour, and the remaining 25 to 30% is available as wheat by-products currently  largely destined for livestock consumption. However, pelleting of these by-products (e.g. bran, husks) is advisable for various reasons, especially for storage and transport. Due to its higher bulk density, less storage and transport space will be required and profitability therefore significantly increased. On the other hand, these by-products contain beneficial compounds for human health, which could be recovered and recycled into the food chain. This course will provide essential details to understand the process technology and machine requirements required for key applications in feed & food.

This course is well-suited for plant  and  production  managers,  head millers, product development technologists, and professionals  with  commercial  or  technical  background  in  grain or feed milling related industries.
