What’s in the eBook?

Soybean meal is the gold standard of protein in animal feed formulations, thanks to its excellent amino acid profile and high crude protein content. However, variations among soybean varieties, growing conditions, storage conditions, and processing methods can significantly impact protein quality.

It is crucial to monitor the variations in protein quality to optimize animal health and performance while minimizing harmful anti-nutritional factors.

During processing, soybeans require enough heat to destroy these anti-nutritional factors and improve the digestibility of the proteins. Overcooking soybean meal results in irreversible damage to its nutritional value.

The right soybean processing system can control heat treatment at every step to ensure the correct temperature and ideal exposure to produce the highest quality protein.
