US Patent Office Full Record

Corn fiber oil may be combined with other foods or ingredients, or for use as dietary supplements for cholesterol-lowering purposes. The corn processing industry produces about 4 million tons of corn fiber each year, which could yield about 80,000 tons of corn fiber oil. Corn fiber generally isn't worth a lot of money. This technology could turn a low-end product into a high-value commodity.
The nutracuetical and pharmaceutical companies, as well as the food processing industry could use this technology. In addition, the corn processing industry will benefit from this technology.
