The protein-containing waters from the saccharate process (E.P.S.) represent an important and cheap source of albumin with high nutritive value.
The described trials show that, for ruminants, in a regim with pulp, the E.P.S. may replace 50 % of the protein furnished by oil-cakes, without any inconvenience for the growth of the animals.
For a sugar factory it seems recommendable to introduce the E.P.S. into the pulp, so as to reach a ratio of 10 to 15% in the final product. In this way expensive protein is replaced by a cheaper albumin.
A more elaborated formula may be found in the manufacturing of an “all-mash, based upon dried pulp, E.P.S., several oil-cakes and a mineral and vitaminated complement.
The until 60-70% D.S. concentrated E.P.S. may be sold to the cattle-food manufacturers in two ways : either in liquid form to those who are equipped for its handling, or after incorporation into a bearer as straw, linseedflakes, bran, etc. .
