These specialty proteins are designed for nutritional use in infant animal, aquaculture, and companion animal diets
Central Soya offers a variety of animal feed ingredients (e.g. soy protein concentrates and lecithins). Known for their quality and consistency, Central Soya's ingredients are used in diets for companion animals and pets, horse, swine, beef, poultry, dairy, aquaculture, ratites, fur-bearing animals, ornamental fish, animal milk replacers, and in supplements and even biologicals.

Central Soya's ingredients are divided into four broad categories. An overview of the development and application of soybeans and soy proteins for animal feeding can be found in The Protein Book.

Soy Protein Concentrates
These specialty proteins are designed for nutritional use in infant animal, aquaculture, and companion animal diets. Concentrated, highly digestible and biologically available amino acids combined with reduced anti-nutritional factors compared to standard soy proteins (e.g. soybean meal) make these products ideal for maximum production efficiency.

Soy Lecithins
Soy lecithins are used in animal diets not only for their nutritional contribution of phospholipids (phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylinositol) and essential fatty acids (Omega 6 - linoleic acid, Omega 3 - linolenic acid), but also for many functional purposes. As a processing aid to maximize extrusion efficiency, as an emulsifier in milk replacer products, as a fat and water emulsifier in canned petfoods, or simply as a dust suppressor in mash feeds and premixes, lecithin is an unique multiple purpose ingredient.

Soybean Meal
Soybean meal is the foundation of most animal feeds, supplying necessary amino acids for maximum production efficiency. Central Soya is a leader in producing high quality products and reliable service.

Soy Oil
Energy sources are critical in animal diets. Vegetable oils have been shown to be an ideal energy source in animal nutrition. They can also be an excellent source of essential Omega 6 (linoleic acid) and Omega 3 (linolenic acid) fatty acids. Our soy oil addresses these needs.
