Celiplus has a similar feeding value to Brewers Grains in terms of
the high level of digestible fibre. However, one major difference is
that since it is not a plant extract, the fibre content of Celiplus
is virtually 100% digestible cell walls with no 'woody' components such
as lignin elements. The superb quality of the fibre content in Celiplus
is reflected in the D-Value (88%) which is higher than either barley
or sugar beet pulp!
Celiplus is a co-product from citric acid production. The process involves
the fermentation of molasses using an inoculum of the yeast Aspergillus
niger to produce citric acid. Once purified the citric acid is used
in the human food industry as a preservative and flavouring (sharpening)
agent. Following extraction of the citric acid, the remaining fermented
molasses and spent yeast comprises Celiplus, which is used as a unique

Storage / Processing
Like all moist feeds Celiplus is perishable and therefore requires ensiling for long term stability. To achieve maximum shelf-life, do not allow to come into contact with other other feeds.
Celiplus should be ensiled for long term storage.
