Processes of Soybean Meal Extraction
There are three proecsses commonly used for extraction of soybean meal: solvent extraction, mechanical extraction and expelling/extruding. In the solvent extraction process, the oil from the bean is first mechanically extracted. The remaining 1.5% residual oil is further extracted using the hexane solvent. This process is mainly used in oil mills in the US. In mechanical extraction, the soybean meal is obtained using a screw press. As the oil is obtained using the friction between the screws, the quantity of oil extracted is low, which results in a high-fat meal. Using expelling/extruding process the soybeans are extruded and then pressed using screw press. This process is used in organic farming practices and at farm level.
