Soyabean Meal

 

Solvent-extracted dehulled soybean meal is produced by cracking, heating and flaking soybeans. The oil content of the conditioned product is reduced with hexane or homologous hydrocarbon solvents to 1% or less on a commercial basis. The extracted flakes are cooked and ground into meal.  To ensure optimal nutritional value, meal for animal feed needs to be heated sufficiently to inactivate certain antinutritional factors, such as trypsin inhibitors.  The process is known as toasting. 

Properly processed dehulled soybean meal is an excellent source of protein and is used extensively in feed for swine, cattle, poultry and aquaculture.  Soybean meal must be properly heated during processing to provide optimum protein nutrition.  Feed rations are formulated to fit the nutritional needs of the animal at its particular stage of the life cycle.  Soybean meal is ideal for high-energy rations such as broiler, turkey and swine starter feeds.  For young animals and birds, dehulled soybean meal is the preferred product.

Indian soybean has a high profat content (49% - 50%) compared to the 44% profatcontent of China and Western countries.
