Yubraska Elite Whites
Wow! A great breeder got lucky. He crossed a tropical
corn from the Yucatan with a stiff stalk corn from Nebraska and set
Higher protein: Yubraska runs 10-12.5% protein, more than 25% higher
than normal corn. That means better nutrition for foods and feeds. Feed
trials show greatly improved weight gain for fish, shrimp, poultry, cattle
and hogs. The functional boost from added protein lets processors make
larger and thinner grits, flakes, tortillas and chips without additives
Improved amino acid profile: Almost every amino acid gains about 25%
over normal corns. That means better nutrition and flavor.
Quicker cooking: Yubraska displays a unique starch structure that absorbs
much more quickly than other corns. Switching to Yubraska can cut steeping
time 40%, cooking time 25% and energy costs over 25%.
Better starch: Yubraska offers improved starch functionality and an
extremely white color that does not need any bleaching or dying.
It offers attributes of modified starches without being modified.
Larger kernels: Yubraska kernels run 15% larger than normal, reducing
the surface to starch ratio and cutting biodegradable waste 15% and reducing
sewer charges. The uniquely shaped large kernels give an easy visual
identification to help prevent commingling.
