Roasted Guar Korma best substitute for Soybean meal

Guar Meal is a natural animal feed but is also used as binder for other feeds. It typically comes in two forms: Guar Meal Churi (Hull) and Guar Meal Korma (Germ).

Whereas Soybean Meal is a by-product obtained during soybean oil extraction

Comparison of Guar meal with Soybean meal

Rama Gums is largest manufacturer of Roasted guar korma in India, The high amino acid content makes Guar Meal an appealing and potential source of protein supplement for animals. Moreover the germ fraction contains energy, protein, methionine and phosphorus in higher levels than in other best available vegetable proteins. The comparison of guar meal with soybean clearly concludes that guar meal can be introduced as a suitable replacement for conventional meals without any adverse effects.

Conclusion – As per above experiment and research by Rama Gums, Normal Guar Korma can partially replace Soybean meal but when analyzed Roasted Guar korma can fully substitute soybean meal for animal feed consumption.

This inhibitor limits the formation of trypsin which is an essential enzyme for nutrition. Therefore the Guar korma is heated at high temperature which breaks the cell walls and enhances the protein and amino acids digestibility in the product.

Excellent replacement for Soybean Meal, with highest protein value and lower cost advantage
