Research—Feeds—Soymeal and Bacterial Fermentation


From Abstract: This study aimed to improve the nutritional value of soybean meal by fermenting it with Bacillus subtilis.  The fermentation process increased soybean meal’s protein content by 19%, making it a good substitute for fishmeal.  In shrimp diets, the maximal replacement level of fishmeal with the fermented product was 61.67%.
