Corncob

Eurocob

Description :
The corn cob can be divided into three natural parts :
the periphery to which are attached the grains, the core which form the light part and a woody band comprising the hard part between the corn and the periphery of the cob.

The products called EU GRITS are obtained from the woody band and are characterised by their considerable hardness, higher density, extreme fluidity and high absorption.

The products called EU FEEDS come from the core and periphery of the cob and, consequently, are soft, with a relatively low density and a very high capacity of absorption.

Due to their physical and chemical characteristics and their particle size distribution going from 4000 microns to impalpable powders, these granules are compatible with many applications.
