Royka Distillery is a subdivision of Urzhum Distillery JSC which produces all of the rectified alcohol required by the further processes at the factory.
Currently the distillery manufactures Lux alcohol and best quality pure alcohol. Liquid vinasse is a by-product of this process; in its turn, it can be used as a nutritious animal feed with high protein and vitamin content.
The factory runs a compete vinasse processing line to separate it into dry vinasse, syrup and water.
Feed-grade dry rye vinasse comprises about 90% of dry matter containing raw protein, nitrogen-free extractive substances, fat, fiber, ash as well as vitamins and micronutrients.
Raw protein content in the finished product (on oven-dry basis) is over 15%, raw fiber content (on oven-dry basis) is just below 13%.
Vinasse protein is a high quality protein enriched with essential amino acids that cannot be produced by the body of monogastric animals (pigs, poultry) and must be consumed via feeds.
Another nutritious aspect of vinasse is the content of B vitamins, including vitamin B9 (folic acid), tocopherol and ergosterol, all of which regulate animal metabolism.
Dry vinasse also contains the following micronutrients: iron, zinc, manganese, copper.
At present the factory manufactures feed-grade dry rye vinasse in accordance with the Technical Specification TU 9182-010-46095268-2013. It is characterized by bread-yeasty odor and unleavened, slightly sour taste.
Our company can manufacture feed-grade dry rye vinasse in powder or in granules.
