Interpretive Summary: Before examining all of the different possibilities for DDGS use, a discussion regarding ethanol and DDGS production methods is warranted. This chapter will cover current production processes and some of the new practices which are appearing at plants, including front end fractionation and back end fractionation. Additionally, standard coproduct definitions will be discussed, as they govern the marketing and sales of these materials.
