Correct, it has guaranteed low ESC+starch levels - just need to rinse it well initially to get rid of as much dirt as possible. It will soak up water as you rinse, so it's ready to feed when done.
Rinse/soak/rinse is for beet pulp pellets or shreds that do not have a guaranteed analysis of the ESC+starch amount.
- First rinse is to remove dirt/iron.
- Soak is in a lot of water - more than it will absorb - to soak out possible excess sugar, then dump off the excess water after the soak period.
- Final rinse is to wash any residual sugar sticking to the beet pulp after the soaking.
