From the field to the mills: how we process yellow B grit

Yellow B grit is made mostly from yellow maize. This grit is one of the key ingredients in most corn breakfast cereals as well as in maize snacks. The by-products of the production of yellow B grit includes maize flour as well as chop, which is used as an animal feed especially for cattle.

When grit is being produced there are a number of factors that can have a direct effect on the quality of the product. Climate is one of the biggest factors as it has a direct effect on the crop. Luckily, the crops we grow in the Free State have one of the best possible climates in which to produce grit.

Maize grits are made through the process of extrudation.

The grit is highly nutritious which is why it is so often used in the manufacturing of commonly eaten foods. Our grit has no added colourants or preservatives and it is manufactured in a hygienic environment.

The climate will have an effect on the moisture content of the crop and the maximum moisture content the crop should have before being placed in storage is 14%, but it is the natural drying of our crops that add to the quality of the maize products we produce, including the yellow B grit. It is maize with a higher percentage of hard endosperm that is ideal for producing maize grit. The harder the grit, the more vibrant the colour.

There are a few industries that use yellow B grit and they are just about all food and beverage related. Grit is used to produce snacks and breakfast cereals but it is also a popular product used to manufacture beer.
