Soya is one of the most consumed farm products in the world among rice and wheat.
Known as “the golden pearl” by the Chinese, soya is real super food. It contains all the necessary amino acids required for growth in the right proportion. This makes soya an ideal protein source for both humans and animals. As a protein source for animal feed, soya is superior in terms of quality, availability and price compared to other proteins of vegetable origin.
Nutrition for humans and animals
Soybeans contain typically 34–36% protein and 18–20% oil with several good, unsaturated fatty acids. Soybean oil and lecithin extracted from oil are used in the food industry from macaroni through bakery products to chocolate.
Soybeans also contain important vitamins and minerals necessary for humans and animals, for example vitamins A, B, E and K, as well as potassium, calcium, phosphorus, zinc and iron. Superceeding other edible plants, soybeans also contain a high level of isoflavonoids.
