“For decades, soybean meal has been recognized as the “Gold Standard” – a preferred feed ingredient in livestock, poultry and aquaculture diets, with primary emphasis on its amino acid composition. In recent years, its Gold Standard quality and reputation has been further enhanced through new information regarding its productive energy value and its complementary nutrition characteristics of bioactive compounds, fiber composition and health benefits. These next chapters of the soybean meal story will continue to expand its value through ongoing research efforts and commercial applications in animal diets.”
