alternative protein sources
to soybean meal

Soybean meal remains sovereign, but it can be easily replaced
when other protein sources can offer a more profitable solution -
it only takes knowledge and experience.
IOANNIS MAVROMICHALIS

S

oybean meal, containing 44 percent
crude protein, remains the most
common protein source for all compound feeds for pigs, poultry and dairy
cattle, worldwide. It is not only readily
available on a global basis but also is
priced so that any other protein source
cannot easily compete with soybean
meal. This position of eminence has not
been attained easily and without considerable cost. Perhaps another protein
source could easily have taken the position of soybean if it was cultivated at
such extent while strong marketing forces
promoted it on a global basis. In the end,
soybean meal is the textbook protein
source by which example or typical formulas are formulated for educational purposes, and one that remains the reference
standard for all other protein sources. 
Yet soybean meal is but one of the
many protein sources available, and

alternatives abound. If they are not
used as widely as they should be, this
is because they remain relatively more
expensive, they have been mislabeled
as problematic due to anti-nutritional
factors, and because an experienced
nutritionist re-formulated the diets. If we
come to think about it, soybean meal is
often too expensive by itself. Soybean
meal also contains anti-nutritional factors, and nutritionists are not as inaccessible as some might believe. In essence,
soybean meal is often used because it
has become customary, whereas another protein source might be overpassed
despite offering cost savings under
proper guidance by a qualified professional. The following six ingredients are
such undervalued protein sources that
ought to become as standard as soybean meal, at least in the regions they
are produced in abundance.
