soybean

the leguminous plant Glycine max (syn. G. soja) used for the production of soya beans. The greatest use of the bean is the extraction of oil for industrial use. The beans are unsuitable for feeding in their raw state unless they are roasted because they contain growth-inhibiting factors.

soybean meal
the material left after extraction of soybean oil. It is poisonous if the oil is extracted by elution with trichloroethylene.
trichloroethylene-extracted soybean meal
causes a radiomimetic syndrome of anemia, leukopenia and submucosal petechiation.
