Organic Malting Barley

(Certified organic product)

The term malting barley refers to a type of barley which – unlike feed barley – is grown for brewing purposes and therefore fit for human consumption.
Malting barley is converted into malt in the malting plant and is used in a number of ways: as ground malt in breweries, as ground barley malt in the bakery industry, as the basis for malt spirits and whiskeys in the liquor industry, as malt coffee or, for instance, in breakfast cereals. Almost all types of grain can be used for the purpose of brewing and malting. Barley has established itself as one of the main raw materials besides wheat. Barley husks play an important technical role in the brewing process as they form a natural filter bed to separate the wort from the residual grains during the lautering process. Of all cereals, barley also displays the highest activity of starch-degrading enzymes, which plays an important role in the rapid saccharification (literally “to make into sugar”) of starches in the brewhouse. 

Malting barley is made predominantly from two-row summer barley. As a result of plant cultivation, the last few years have seen the development of new types of two-row winter malting barley, whose quality approaches that of summer malting barley. Moreover, types of six-row winter malting barley are also being cultivated, mostly in France.

Values can vary according to type and harvest times. All raw materials are subject to EU Directive 834/2007 and 889/2008 - Certification DE-HH-039-Öko-Kontrollstelle (organic control body). The values indicated are not binding. Malting barley produced using organic methods is subject to variety testing. Malting barley produced using organic methods is subject to inspections pertaining to the organic production of animal feed and / or food items.

* As a natural product, organic malting barley is subject to various factors that determine its quality, such as climatic conditions during the growing season; the soil condition of the cultivation area; the deployment of fertilisers or pesticides as well as production circumstances and the use of processing aids. The product quality may therefore vary from year to year. 

Organic Soybean Cake

Soybean cake is the by-product of the manufacture of soybean oil. To this end, soybean seeds are ground and heated, which increases the oil yield during the subsequent extrusion process. The method of oil pressing is usually performed over rotating pressing screws (“expeller presses”).  

Soybean cake is particularly suitable as a straight feeding stuff for dairy cattle and for the purpose of fattening livestock. It is also ideal as poultry feed and as a component of concentrated cattle feed.

Data:

Dry matterapprox. 89 %
Crude ashapprox. 6–7%
Crude protein FSapprox. 40–44 %
Crude fibreapprox. 7–8 %

Values relating to dry matter content can vary according to type and harvest times. All raw materials are subject to EU Directive 834/2007 and 889/2008 - Certification DE-HH-039-Öko-Kontrollstelle (organic control body). The values indicated are not binding.

The precise composition of the organic soybean cakes is determined by the composition of the soybean undergoing processing and is subject to natural variations.

Soybean produced using organic methods is subject to inspections pertaining to the organic production of animal feed and / or food items.

*As a natural product, soybean is subject to various factors that determine its quality, such as climatic conditions during the growing season; the soil condition of the cultivation area; the deployment of fertilisers or pesticides as well as production circumstances and the use of processing aids.

Organic Sugar Cane Molasses

(Certified organic product)

Organic sugar cane molasses is the by-product of organic cane sugar processing from organic sugar cane. Organic sugar cane molasses is used as an anti-dust agent, as a pelleting aid and as a silage additive. Organic sugar cane molasses is also suitable (depending on the degree of standardisation) as a straight feeding stuff for dairy cattle and for the purpose of fattening livestock. It is also ideal as a component of concentrated cattle feed.

Brix approx. 70–80 %
Total amount of sugarmin. approx. 50 %
Ashmax. approx. 11 %

Values relating to dry matter content can vary according to type and harvest times. All raw materials are subject to EU Directive 834/2007 and 889/2008 - Certification DE-HH-039-Öko-Kontrollstelle (organic control body). The values indicated are not binding.

The precise composition of the organic molasses is determined by the composition of the sugar cane undergoing processing and is subject to natural variations.
