Protein Resources

Idea to reality: Because soybean meal cannot be fed to some animals due to the soluble sugars, AURI worked with Protein Resouces and Minnesota Soybean on a possible solution.

AURI’s role: AURI and Minnesota Soybean conducted research to understand the nutrition of a low-oligosaccharide soybean meal that was easier on animals’ stomachs and shared that knowledge with interested businesses. AURI assisted Protein Resources with product and process development for NutriVance soybean meal, including testing and locating equipment necessary to get the product to market.

Outcomes: Protein Resources is now producing commercial-grade NutriVance and is currently shipping it to existing clients in the Asian markets.
