Citrofeed is a fermentation residue from the citric acid production. It is indirectly dried by steam and a heat inactivated mycelium of Aspergillus niger

Citrofeed is a very rich fiber feed ingredient with a medium protein content and a citric acid residue ranging from 1 % to 6 %. It is a common and valuable component in pig feeding, especially for breeding sows. One reason among others is the high feed conversion rate.
