  2. Ambient Processing and Nutritional Assessment of Reduced-Trypsin-Inhibitor & Low Oligosaccharide Soybean Products

    SBC: SCHILLINGER SEED INC            Topic: 85

    The current state of the art of soybean processing requires heat processing to eliminate anti-nutrition factors and make the protein available for digestion. The proposed research will investigate the opportunity to process a new soybean variety that has been traditionally bred (not genetically modified) to eliminate and/or significantly reduce these anti-nutrition factors. This research will inve ...
