Soy Best
Soy Best High Bypass Soybean Meal supplies high-quality bypass protein for dairy cows. Manufactured by the mechanical extraction process, it contains no chemical solvents and is all-natural.

Soy Best includes addition of soy gums, with soy nutrients called lecithin and phosphatidyl-choline, as well as an elevated level of natural vitamin E. The lecithin behaves like rumen-protected fat – resulting in even more rumen bypass.

In addition to containing lots of bypass protein, research shows the bypass protein in Soy Best is more digestible in the intestine than other products tested, as reported in the Journal of Dairy Science .
