Research Enhances Understanding of the Nutritional and Economic Differences in Soybean Meal from Different Origins6.7.2020 16:17:00 CEST | Press release
A new meta-analytical study reinforces U.S. Soy’s reputation for being a global leader in quality and nutrient-density. The study, entitled, “Chemical composition, protein quality and nutritive value of commercial soybean meals produced from beans from different countries,” demonstrates that not all soybean meals are created equal and that meal from different countries of origin should be treated individually when formulating swine and poultry diets.

This cost analysis supported the economic benefits of U.S. soybean meal relative to meal from other origins as a key ingredient in poultry rations. Dr. Gonzalo Mateos, Professor of Animal Science at the University of Madrid in Spain and study co-author, first presented findings from the meta-analysis at the U.S. Soybean Export Council’s (USSEC) As
