With the enzymolytic degradation of protein-derived antinutritional factors, the content of soluble protein inevitably increases in soybean meal.
Enzymolytic soybean meal partially replacing common soybean meal and soy protein isolate improved feed intake, weight gain and immune function of weaned piglets in this study, showing that ESBM may be a novel soybean protein in the nutrition and health of weaned pigs.
