Nutritional aspects
Nutritional attributes 
Bakery waste, such as stale bread and crumbs, can be dried and mixed for animal feeding. It is rich in fat and carbohydrate, but the protein quality and the vitamin content are low. It has been used as a substitute for grain in rations for all classes of livestock. When bakery waste is fed in large amounts, it must be supplemented with vitamin A, minerals and good-quality protein.
Ruminants 
It has been included up to 30% in cattle rations without affecting palatability.
Pigs 
For pigs it can replace all grain.
Poultry 
As the product is rich in salt, more than 15% cannot be used in poultry rations.
