Dried Potatoes are composed of potato by-products from a food processing plant. The main component is potato skins that have been steam extracted without the use of chemicals or artificial aids. Other components could be misshapen pieces as well as limited amounts of fryer skimmings. The product is mixed, dried, and cooled. Uncooled dry material is used as feedstock for the wet products going into the dryer.
Dried Potato product is equal to corn in energy value while having 1 ½ times the protein value. The heat treatment of the product greatly increases the bio-availability of the nutrients. Specific use recommendations depend on the species and size of animal being fed.
