U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC), with support from the United Soybean Board, releases third edition quality manual to serve as a roadmap to analyses at all stages of the soy supply chain in the feed industry.
Soybeans are one of the most valuable crops in the world, contributing increasing amounts of high-quality oil and protein to human and animal diets. Among global soy origins, U.S. Soy has an excellent amino acid content and amino acid profile, increased metabolizable energy content due to higher sugar levels, lower fiber content and improved amino acid digestibility, higher total phosphorus content, and greater uniformity of nutrients.
Worldwide, soybean production has increased steadily over the past decades. This increase in production brings a heightened need for quality control and standardized analyses. Enter the Quality Manual and Analysis for Soybean Products in the Feed Industry.
The recently released third edition of this quality manual hits every stop along the soy value chain, from the crusher to the compounder and from the plant quality operator to the nutritionist.
This article was partially funded by U.S. Soy farmers, their checkoff, and the soy value chain.
