sunflower-pelletsSoybean meal also known as soybean oil cake is a flour made by grinding the solid residue of soybean oil production. It is widely used as a filler and source of protein in animal diets, including pig, chicken, cattle, horse, sheep, and fish feed. Soybean meal is an important source of protein for animals due to its excellent amino acid composition and high level of digestibility.

Soybean meal is preferably made from high quality, sound, clean, dehulled yellow beans, since beans with a dark colored seed coat, or even beans with a dark hilum will inadvertently leave undesirable dark specks in the flour. All commercial soybeans of Ukrainian origin are yellow or yellow brown.

Because soybean meal is the principal source of protein for the feed industry worldwide, it has become an ingredient that is strategically traded around the globe every day of the year.

Sunflower meal is the fourth largest source of supplemental protein for livestock feeding behind soybean meal, cottonseed meal, and rapeseed meal.

Sunflower meal is an excellent livestock feed, especially for ruminants, can be included in the diets of pigs, poultry, cattle, horses of all ages. The sunflower oil extraction industry produces three kinds of meal: meal produced from undehulled seeds, containing around 28% of protein and 25–28% fiber; meal of partially dehulled seed, containing 35–37% protein and 18% fiber; and meal obtained through a two-step dehulling process of seed, containing 40–42% protein and 12–14% fiber. The meal composition thus depends on the efficiency of the dehulling process of sunflower seeds. The oil content of sunflower meals ranges between 1.5% and 2.5%, depending on oil extraction efficiency and raw material.
