Recommendations for using soya-based feedstuffs in organic pig husbandry

Soya beans are rich in protein with a valuable composition of amino acids but also contain anti-nutritive substances (trypsin inhibitors) and approximately 20% fat, which can limit the applicability in organic pig husbandry. If soya beans are pressed and heat treated, the products can be used in organic feed rations for pigs. Critical points in ration planning must be considered to achieve a high meat quality.
