Soybean meal and cake are typical by-products of the creation of soybean oil. The comparison between the two lies in the extraction procedure for soybean oil: the cake is squeezed, and the cake is extracted and treated with an extractive solvent. In contrast to soybean meal, the cake has more protein, and fat-no more than 1.5%.
The soybean meal can be of 2 types:
- Full fat (without oil extraction)
- Metal semi-skimmed meal (pressed fat full meal)
Also, one of its advantages is its relatively low fiber content. This fact certainly increases the level of digestibility compared to other feed additives, which for him is well known among all types of livestock and poultry (also suitable for exotic animals). Soybean meal has a large exchange power, has the required micro factors such as iron, zinc, manganese, and calcium.

Soybean meal processing
When the soybeans are processed, the husk (seed coat) is removed. The nuts are crushed and rolled into flakes. After that, the oil and soybean meal are separated. The stomach can be used in the form of pellets like animal feed. Soy flour can be used in a variety of meals for humans and animals.
You can create soybean oil almost anywhere. Soybean meal is not only used for livestock, but also for pet food, animal garden animals, and fish. Soybean oil is the main vegetable oil used in the United States. Soybeans are the #1 ingredient in vegetable oil. Check your kitchen and read the labels on your vegetable oil.
Soybean meal usage in Illinois
After the crops are harvested, the soybeans are either placed in grain containers or brought to large storage areas in nearby communities. This storage zone is called the grain elevator. The majority of soybeans grown in the United States are processed for food, animal feed, oil, and fuel. Nearly half of the annual crop is exported.
Of the remaining soybeans in Illinois, most of them are eaten by livestock. They are the #1 customer of Illinois soybean farmers. Pork creation accounts for 85 percent of soybean meal use in Illinois. Dairy cows and cows together eat another 5 percent and poultry for consumption 4 percent.
Biodiesel Made from Soybeans
Biodiesel is a renewable fuel made from soy! This is an alternative diesel fuel that is growing very rapidly in the United States. It was brought up in the 1890s by inventor Rudolph Diesel. Diesel engines have become the engine of choice for great power, reliability, and fuel economy in the world. Biodiesel has reduced exhaust emissions compared to petroleum diesel fuel. Biodiesel is biodegradable and non-toxic.
