The maize flour milling process is mechanical and consists of several processes. It starts by the cleaning of the maize and ends by its grinding and sieving into flour.
The cleaning of maize flour production process is done by removing all the foreign material like sand, grit and dirt that may be present in the maize. These foreign materials and any other impurity that may be harmful to humans after consumption of the flour or can damage the corn flour milling machine during maize flour processing are removed. This process ensures the maize for superior flour quality. All these foreign materials are removed by a sieving process where all course particles are removed. Different kinds of sieves are used which ensures all materials bigger or smaller than the maize itself is left behind.
After cleaning, the second step of Maize/Corn Flour Production Process is maize conditioning. This is the addition of moisture to it and allowing it to soak for some time. This allows the bran to be peeled off easily. The maize is then de-germinated and polished prior to flour milling. This is the separation of the germ meal, endosperm and bran. This process results in very high quality maize meal. When the bran, endosperm and gem are ground together, the resulting maize meal is considered poor quality. This is because it has a shorter shelf life, gives the porridge a yellow appearance and gives the eater a bloated feeling.
The maize is then passed through a flour milling machine where it is grounded up into flour. After the milling, the last step of the maize flour production is sieving the flour. Flour of the desired quality is retrieved and the residue is returned in the machine for further milling.
