Soja

Soybean Meal for animal feed


Soybean originates from Eastern Asia. It has been an important economic resource for at least 5000 years. Its seeds are naturally rich in protein and oil and it is used massively in animal feed in the form of soybean meal.

The main producers of soya are the United States with 35% of world production, followed by Brazil with 27% and Argentina with 19%.

Soya grains undergo a transformation process called trituration resulting in a co-product called meal. This meal is highly concentrated in nutriments, in particular in protein. This characteristic makes this oily meal one of the principal protein ingredients in animal feed (pigs, poultry…) around the world.

Général Afitex mainly exports two high demand varieties, from Brazil to Western Africa: soybean meal with gross protein contents of 46% or 48%.

Soybean meal can be sold in the form of pellets or flour, depending on the manufacturing process of the trituration factory. The quality of the soybean meal is generally expressed in “Profat” corresponding to the gross protein level combined with the proportion of fat.
