Alto leverages the natural versatility of corn to manufacture two distinct products.
Distillers Corn Oil
Extracted from the thin stillage in the dry corn milling process, distillers corn oil provides a valuable source of energy that can be utilized in ruminant and monogastric diets. Although there are similarities with conventional corn oil, our DCO has higher levels of lutein and zeaxanthin, which make it a valuable poultry feed ingredient. Distillers corn oil is also used as a feedstock for biodiesel production.
Derived from maize, Alto’s corn germ is rich in dietary fiber, quality protein, and essential minerals like iron and zinc. At the Pekin Wet Mill, Alto Ingredients separates the germ of the corn kernel and sells it as a vital ingredient for the manufacturing of corn oil for human food and corn germ meal for animal feed.
