Technical Abstract: Distillers dried grains with soluble (DDGS) are one of the main coproducts of ethanol production from using the dry-grinding process. The lipids from corn or sorghum are not utilized in ethanol production, and are thus concentrated in DDGS. The main lipid components in corn and sorghum DDGS are triaclyglycerols, phytosterols, ferulate phytosterol esters, tocopherols and tocotrienols, and policosanols. The content, properties, and potential value as coproducts for each of these lipids are discussed in this chapter.
