Podcast: Chemical composition of canola meal, 00-rapeseed meal, and 00-rapeseed expellers

Tanawong Maison, a Ph. D. student in the Stein Monogastric Nutrition Lab, discusses an experiment to determine the chemical composition of different canola and 00-rapeseed products. The experiment compared canola and 00-rapeseed meal produced from plants grown in different locations, as well as 00-rapeseed meal products resulting from different oil extraction techniques. Adapted from a presentation at the 2013 ASDA-ASAS Joint Annual Meeting, Indianapolis, IN, July 8-12.

Press release: New research sheds light on nutritional value of fermented soybean meal in pig diets

URBANA – Soybean meal contains anti-nutritional factors, such as oligosaccharides and antigens, that restrict its use in diets fed to weanling pigs. Fermentation of soybean meal eliminates some of these antinutritional factors, making fermented soybean meal a potential lower-cost substitute for animal protein in starter diets. Soybean meal fermented in the presence of Aspergillus oryzae and Lactobacillus subtilis has recently become available on the United States market. To aid in the formulation of diets containing fermented soybean meal, researchers at the  University of Illinois have determined the digestibility of energy and amino acids in this ingredient.
