Corn bran contains a large amount of nutrients, such as: protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, fats, minerals (potassium, phosphorus, calcium, manganese), fatty acids that strengthen the cardiovascular system.
The composition of corn bran has a rich high fiber content, which helps to prevent stomach and intestinal diseases, and stimulate the animal's digestion. The protein found in corn bran, zein, is deficient and considered unsafe. Its structure does not contain gluten (gluten), and in fact does not cause an allergic reaction in animals. Therefore, such food is good for animals prone to allergy.
Survey has revealed that corn bran mixed with another by-product (such as soy hulls) can quite effectively replace a complete grain corn feed for ruminants. Thanks to soluble fiber, they have a positive effect on nutrient absorption and growth performance.
