The soybean complex comprises three main products: the bean (or seed), the oil and the soybean cake. Soybean meal is the by-product of the extraction of soybean oil. Crushing one ton of soybeans yields approximately 180 kg of oil and 800 kg of meal (Peyronnet et al., 2014) . Soy is mainly used as an intermediate product in food or industrial production chains. Nearly 90% of the world’s soybean harvest is destined for the crushing industry to produce soybean meal and oil.
