What is palm kernel expeller?
Palm kernel expeller is a by-product of the crushing and expelling of oil from palm kernel.
Known for its balanced energy and protein, high fibre, good level of residual oil and high palmitic acid, it is widely used in compound feeds for adult ruminant livestock such as dairy cow, beef cow and sheep. As protein and fat are two important ingredients in animal feed, it is a common practice to combine these ingredients as profat content in the trade specifications of palm kernel expeller. palm kernel oil expeller has a fairly high oil content which can be construed as a good source of metabolised energy for feed uses. Almost untraceable aflatoxin can be contributed to low moisture content as a result of proper handling and storage conditions employed by the crusher. These are among the key elements of palm kernel expeller which makes it a crucial source of animal feed.
