So, what is soya bean meal?

Soya bean meal, also known as soybean meal, is a byproduct of the soybean oil extraction process that is widely used in animal feed due to its high protein content. This ingredient is made from ground soybeans, which have been dehulled and crushed, resulting in a light-colored powder with a nutty flavor. Soya bean meal is an excellent source of essential amino acids, making it a popular choice for livestock, poultry, and aquaculture diets. It also contains carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals that contribute to the overall nutritional quality of the feed.
