SOYBEAN is the most nutritious crop in the world containing 40% protein and 20% oil, both of which are vital in human and animal diet. Soybean contains at least 100% more proteins than any other common crop and yields 5-10 times more protein per unit area than other crops.
With the available technology for processing soybeans at industrial and household level, soybean has become one of the most promising food crops available to improve the diets of millions of people in the world.
