Dry milling plants
Wheat, as the primary grain used for producing bakery flour and bakery products, has a rich history and tradition in human nutrition. However, besides bakery purposes, wheat is also a source of many other innovative products in food, feed, and non-food applications. The starch industry is a growing sector in Europe, and in 2021, the EU produced approximately 10.7 million tons of starch, of which approximately 61% was used for food and approximately 39% for non-food applications (VGMS Data, 2022). Various kinds of starch are produced primarily from potato, maize, and wheat. Native and modified starches, as well as glucose derivatives and gluten as a by-product, are used in many food products.
The production of wheat and pea starch is mainly done by wet separation processes out of the flour. The focus of starch flour production primarily lies in achieving the highest possible yield of starch inside the flour. Therefore, MMW has developed special “Dry Milling” diagrams for deep processing together with the most renowned research institute in this sector to fulfill the requirements of the wet technology by different suppliers. CESCO provides innovative technological solutions in grain handling, storing, and processing, including MMW Dry Milling equipment. As a competent partner in the biotechnological chain of adding value to grain and grain products, CESCO acts as a trusted partner for businesses seeking to enhance their processing capabilities.
