Benson Hill Soy Ingredients FOR AQUAFEEDS
A SUSTAINABLE, EFFECTIVE PROTEIN INGREDIENT
Benson Hill leverages natural genetic diversity in soy to create ingredients uniquely suited to the aquaculture industry. With up to 20% higher protein and lower oligosaccharides than conventional soy and unique, low-carbon benefits, Benson Hill’s Ultra High-Protein Low-Oligosaccharide Soy (UHPLO) is an ingredient that will check the box for your company’s Procurement, Nutrition, and Sustainability goals.
Meet a novel feed ingredient that fits into your ration: Benson Hill UHPLO Soy offers aquafeed formulators an affordable, scalable alternative to concentrated protein ingredients such as Soy Protein Concentrate (SPC).1
In a feeding study of post-smolt Atlantic Salmon, Benson Hill UHPLO Soy maintained equivalent performance to an SPC-based diet, even at high inclusion levels. Benson Hill UHPLO Soy was also found to have strong performance in trout, marine finfish, and shrimp.2
FEED CONVERSION RATIO:
Benson Hill UHPLO Soy is made exclusively from Benson Hill® Ultra-High Protein, Low-Oligosaccharide soybeans so protein is concentrated up-front in the bean, requiring less processing to achieve similar protein levels as SPC.
The removal of this processing step creates a reduction of carbon emissions and water use, enabling feed formulators to deliver on carbon reduction commitments.
When not considering the impact of land use change, Benson Hill UHPLO Soy can require up to 90% less water and up to 88% less CO2e to produce compared to Brazilian-sourced SPC.1
1 On a per kilogram of product basis, benchmarked relative to Brazilian-sourced SPC, based on a Life Cycle Assessment conducted by Blonk Consultants (2022).
2 Based on feeding trails conducted by various external parties, 2014-2019.

BE PART OF FOOD SYSTEM INNOVATION.
Benson Hill High Protein non-GMO soybeans not only have the potential to transform your business, they are a key ingredient in transforming our food system.
Using CropOS® technology, we can unlock the genetic diversity of plants in ways that increase key attributes like protein and high oleic oil while still maintaining healthy yields.
Because these soybeans are higher in protein right out of the ground, they can reduce energy intensive ingredient and food processing steps, saving water and reducing CO2e.
