U.S. soy touts nutritional benefits

ST. LOUIS — Based on testing, research and quality analysis, soybean meal from the United States delivers nutritional benefits, according to the U.S. Soybean Export Council.

When collectively considering soybean quality factors, the United States has less damage to whole soybeans with less moisture, better soybean meal processing conditions, improved levels of digestible amino acids and greater energy compared to soy of other origins.

That means better animal performance, reduced diet costs, reduced formulation challenges, increased sustainability and, ultimately, superior value to those producers who feed it in their poultry rations.

The USSEC showcased these advantages at the International Production and Processing Expo Jan. 25-27.

“Buyers should focus on the characteristics that impact the nutritional value of the total diet, including animal performance, and not just the ingredient cost,” said Courtney Knupp, USSEC director of animal and aquaculture nutrition meal.
