The ethanol industry is booming and extensive research is now being pursued to develop alternative uses for Distillers Dried Grains (DDG) and Distillers Dried Grains with Solubles (DDGS), coproducts of the ethanol production process. Currently, DDG and DDGS are used exclusively as livestock feed. The low starch, high protein and high fiber coproducts appear to be ideally suited for diets treating medical conditions such as diabetes and Celiac’s disease by virtue of their chemical composition. Processing methods need to be investigated to create flours that can be used effectively. Modifying aspects such as color, odor and baking functionality may ...
