Soybean or Soya beans (Glycine max) is an annual legume of the Fabaceae family. Soybeans occur in sizes ranging from 5 to 11 mm in diameter and colours including black, yellow, brown or mottled. Soybean meal or Soybean Oil Cake is produced from flakes that are extracted after soybeans are shelled and heated to separate the oil content. Soybean meal, made from clean, de-hulled yellow beans, is the best source of supplemental protein in diets for livestock including cattle, pig, chicken, sheep, horse, fish, and crustaceans. Soybean meal is popular as an animal feed as it has the highest percentage of essential amino acids – up to 48 percent – of all the animal feeds that are composed of common plant proteins.
Soybean meal is packed with other nutrients as well, including carbohydrates, vitamins and essential minerals such as calcium, iron and folic acid.
About 98 percent of soybean meal is processed into animal feed. The rest is used to make soy flour and protein supplements.
