Corn Gluten Meal

Corn gluten meal (CGM) is a byproduct of corn (maize) processing that has historically been used as an animal feed. There is no true gluten in corn, but simply corn proteins. Corn gluten meal is a protein-rich feed, containing about 65% crude protein, used as a source of protein, energy and pigments for livestock species including fish. It is also valued in pet food for its high protein digestibility. In the USA and Canada, corn gluten meal is also used as a fertilizer and preemergence weed killer. It is important to note that corn gluten meal should not be mistaken for corn gluten feed, which contains about 22% crude protein instead of 65% and is nutritionally completely different. Corn gluten meal can be fed wet or dried, but the dried form is more common.
