Current and potential applications of distiller's spent grain

Authors: P. Johnson, J. Paliwal and S. Cenkowski
Description: Distiller?s spent grain (DSG) is the major by-product of the distilleries. Recently, due to the high demand of bio-fuels there is a significant expansion of the ethanol distilleries globally. This major increase in the bio-fuel production has resulted in a substantial increase in the volume of distiller?s grain generated. Currently, livestock industries are the major market for the distiller?s grains, but the necessity of alternative markets for DSG is becoming very essential due to an increase in their production. However, recent research has shown that DSG has a potential to be used as a supplement and/or ingredient in human food products and in industrial sectors. Processing techniques, such as drying, play a substantial role in determining the quality of the DSG obtained, especially for human consumption.
