Corn Gluten - Production and Exports

Corn gluten feed (CGF) and meal (CGM) are the highly nutritious co-products of the corn refining (wet-milling) industry. Each year, more than $740 million worth of corn gluten feed/corn gluten meal is exported. CGF and CGM are not to be confused, as CGF has roughly 20% crude protein, whereas CGM has approximately 60% crude protein. Each offers various distinctions and advantages for different complete feed rations. In the marketing year ending on Aug. 31, 2013, more than 1.9 million tons left the country for the export market. Ireland (22%) was the top user of U.S. CGF, followed by Israel (22%) and Turkey (13%). Indonesia (24%) was the top user of U.S. CGM, followed by Chile (12%) and Egypt (12%).
