The U.S. Soybean Export Council recently published a feed resource, “Manufacturing Quality Feeds with U.S. Crude Degummed Soybean Oil: Advantages, Benefits and Applications” on USSEC.org.
U.S. degummed soybean oil is a high value energy source for use in swine and poultry diets to improve the caloric efficiency of pork, chicken, and egg production. It is produced in large quantities of consistent quality, which make it a preferred supplemental lipid source of nutritionists around the world. The handbook was written by Dr. Gerald (Jerry) Shurson, Professor of Animal Nutrition in the Department of Animal Science at the University of Minnesota. Professor Shurson is world renowned for his team’s research on assessing the nutritional value of feed fats and oils for swine and poultry, as well as the effects of lipid oxidation on animal health and performance.
