Thermochemically hydrolyzed, solvent-extracted corn fiber hulls are used to make a food additive or animal feed. The process solubilizes the hemicellulose and starch present in the corn fiber hulls to oligosaccharides. The residue may be extracted with a solvent to separate the oil from the corn fiber, leaving a solid residue.
