So, what is soybean meal?

Soybean meal is a high-protein byproduct of the soybean oil extraction process. It is a versatile and nutrient-rich ingredient commonly used in animal feed, as it is an excellent source of essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Soybean meal can be derived from both conventional and genetically modified soybeans and can be further processed into different forms, including full-fat, defatted, and low-oligosaccharide varieties. With its wide availability, affordability, and nutritional value, soybean meal is a popular ingredient in the livestock and aquaculture industries, as well as in the manufacturing of pet food, fertilizer, and other agricultural products.
