Soybeans prior to oil extraction are referred to as full fat soybeans. Properly processed full fat soybeans are a valuable feed ingredient because of their energy, protein, linoleic acid, vitamin E and lecithin contents. There are a number of different products in the market being sold as full fat soybean meal some call them soybean cake. These products are produced by a variety of processes, all of which have a different impact on the nutritive value of the product and its quality in terms of antinutritional factor levels.
At Makakwute Innovative Limited we focus on using extrusion technology to process quality full fat soybeans for animal feeding. Soybeans are the most important crops in the world and are grown for a variety of agricultural and industrial uses. There are eight major oilseed meals in the world. Soybean meal represents more than 50% of the total oilseed meal production. Raw soybeans cannot be used as such for animal feed or human food, because they contain several different antinutritional factors.
These factors are
- Trypsin and chymotrypsin inhibitors
- Phytohaemagglutinins (Lectins)
- Allergenic factors
- Lipases and Lipoxygenases.
These factors affect the digestion of soybeans in the stomach. All can be deactivated, modified or reduced through proper heat treatment to minimize or eliminate their adverse effect. Since all these inhibitors are proteins, caution should be taken to assure that no destruction of the oilseed protein occurs. This can be accomplished only through optimum processing and good quality control measures.
For these reason we encourage all feed manufacturer to always EFFSB from Makakwute Feeds a subsidiary of Makakwute Innovative Limited for their formulation, we have carefully extrude it to ensure all the anti-nutritional factors are deactivated, and the real protein is maintain for the health of animals.
