Citrus Pulp Pellets


Citrus pulp is a by-product of the orange juice industry. It comprises fresh solids residues (peels, pulp and seeds). Once mechanically pressed and dried, it is pelletized and commercialized as a complement for animal food. Calcium oxide or hydroxide is added before the pressing stage to form calcium pectate that facilitates the removal of water and reduces the hydrophilic nature of pectin.
