During an on-site visit to a commercial soybean crushing plant in Bolivia, two engineers investigated the modifications required
to produce a food-grade soy flour. Differences between processing for human food and for animal feed are described and the
various processing stages were evaluated to determine their effects on finished product quality. These stages are: (a) pretreatment
of the beans, (b) oil extraction, (c) meal desolventization, and (d) grinding and handling of the flour. Bacteriological control
was maintained throughout the plant. The information gained from this study should be useful and directly applicable to other
soybean crushing plants in the world.
