Soybean meal is produced from the processing of the soya beans which are grown in countries with hot summer months such as the US, Brazil, and Argentina. It is rich in proteins and sulphurous amino acids and is therefore the main source of protein in all farm animals. Soybean meal is also rich in calcium, zinc, iron, phosphorus and magnesium. In the market, two types of soybean meal exist, the High Pro (47-49% protein) and the Low Pro (43-44% protein). M. D. Cyprus Soya Ltd trades only High Pro Soybean meal.
