Sunflower seed cake is a by-product of hot-pressing sunflower seeds to extract oil, used as a high-energy high-protein animal feed. Sunflower seed cake contains 32-36% crude protein, up to 20% crude fibre and up to 10% crude fat.
The energy content of its dry matter varies from 10-12 MJ/kg, depending largely on the cake’s residual fat content. Sunflower seed cake is a nutritious high-protein feed suitable for the feed ration of cattle, pigs and poultry alike.
