Question of the Week
Soy flour is made from whole soybeans that have been roasted and ground. Most soy flour is defatted to keep the flour fresh.
You can find detailed technical information on soy flour manufacturing and equipment at www.fao.org/docrep/t0532e/t0532e00.htm. Another great place to get started is the International Soybean Program (INTSOY).
For equipment sourcing, INTSOY can assist individuals and organizations looking for soybean processing equipment and related supply sources. As each individual case is different, please contact INTSOY with your needs and they will contact you with some suggested sources. Contact:
