These encompass manufacturing processes, raw material requirements, utility requirements, infrastructure needs, machinery and technology requirements, manpower requirements, packaging requirements, transportation requirements, and more.

Corn Processing Production Cost Report

Corn processing is a method used to process corn seeds and obtain various products, including corn starch, corn syrup, oil, gluten, etc. It is a method that allows the production of processed corn that is further associated with the food and beverages industries for the production of corn-based edible products such as cornflakes, baked items, medicines, and more.

Processed corn has three primary industrial uses, including the production of animal feed, usage for human consumption (through baked, fried, and processed food products such as corn flakes, cakes, bread, cereals, medicines, etc.), and ethanol production. The by-products of corn processing include distiller grains, corn germ meal, corn gluten feed, and hominy feed for feed use. Similarly, other by-products include gluten meal and gluten feed from wet milling.

The market for processed corn is primarily dependent upon its demand as an organic additive in food, medical, healthcare, agricultural, and petrochemical industries. Its major application in the production of its derivatives, including corn starch, gluten, oil, and syrup, which are further used in animal feeds, medicines, and human consumable products, drives its demand in the food, medical, healthcare, and agricultural sectors.

Moreover, its versatility and affordability boost its demand in the global market. Industrially processed corn procurement is strongly impacted by factors including changes in its demand, variations in its market prices, logistics, supply, trade, governmental regulations, and regional availability (covering regions with the United States, etc.). Therefore, these factors play a significant role and govern its procurement across borders.

Raw Material for Corn Processing Production

According to the corn processing manufacturing plant project report, the key raw material for corn processing production includes corn.

Manufacturing Process of Corn Processing

The extensive corn processing production cost report consists of the major industrial manufacturing process:

  • By Wet Milling Process: The processing of corn is carried out by the wet milling technique. The process is initiated by steeping the corn, where it is treated with a solution of water and sulfur dioxide and then ground to produce a slurry. The slurry is further processed to separate the corn oil, corn starch, syrup, and gluten of corn, undergoing batch separation at the end. 
  • By Dry Milling Process: Corn processing is carried out by the dry milling method. In this process, raw corn is cleaned and processed through de-germination, grinding, and purification to produce processed corn as the final product.

Corn processing is the name given to the process that is used to produce corn-based products, including corn starch, syrup, and more. Processing of corn requires the proper preparation of the seed for removing oil. After this, it undergoes further cleaning using a magnet and screener, getting rid of any impurities. For dry-milled germ, the seed goes through conditioning and is sent for solvent extraction. For wet-milled germ, the seed undergoes conditioning and is later flaked, cooked, and pressed before solvent extraction.

There are two main processes for producing and processing corn, including a dry milling process and a wet milling process. In the dry process, corn gets hammer milled to a corn meal with medium ground consistency, which is mixed with water, forming a slurry under controlled conditions (maintaining its pH and temperature). Afterward, enzymes are included in starting a hydrolysis process to make dextrin out of corn starch. After the corn mash is cooked to kill off bacteria, fermentation takes place, followed by drying and milling.

Contrastingly, the wet process includes cleaning the corn, which is loaded into tanks for steeping, where it is submerged in a dilute solution that is temperature-controlled for around two days. This results in the softening of the corn kernels along with the absorption of soluble nutrients. Following this, the germ is extracted, and the liquid undergoes wet milling, after which it finally goes through drying and milling.
