Product Description

Soy bean (Glycine Max) is classified as an oilseed rather than a pulse. It is a species of legume native to East Asia (China) and still remains a major crop there till today. Prior to its use for fermented food products, soybean was considered sacred for use in crop rotation as a method of fixing nitrogen. The bean on dry weight basis is 29% oil, 40% protein, 35% carbohydrate and about 5% ash. Its protein is heat stable, thus allowing it to withstand high temperature during cooking.

Though production and utilization of soy bean started in the Orient as far back as the 11th Century, this ancient crop became grown in other parts of the world just in the 20th Century. It was first introduced in Europe in the 1700s and in America in 1804 (Katz, 1998).

It was introduced to Africa from China in the late 19th Century and is now widespread across the continent including Nigeria. The earliest known cultivation of soy beans in Africa was in 1896, when they were grown in Algeria, at a government botanical station and later in 1903, when they were grown in South Africa. From 1908, there has being a dramatic and tremendous increasing interest in growing Soybeans in Africa, as Europe for the first time began import large quantities of Soybeans in response to severe shortages and prices of oil.

By 1982, Soybeans and Soy foods, though still played a very minor role in Africa have been identified as having great potentials in arresting the declining per capital food production as well as protein and calorie consumption in the Continent including Nigeria.

Soy bean was introduced into Nigeria in 1908; it was first planted in Ibadan, Oyo State. Initially the crop was cultivated for export with the support and encouragement of Groundnut Board. Nigeria presently produces about 500,000 MT of Soybean annually making it the largest producer of the product on the African continent. Soybean is a legume which is produced in most the middle belt of the country with Benue state accounting for about 45% of the total production in country.

Soya Beans is a leguminous crop whose importance and economic benefits cannot be over emphasized. Products that can be gotten from Soya Bean include Soy Cake, Soy oil, Full Fat Soya, Soy meal, soy meal, soy flour, soy milk, tofu, textured vegetable protein amongst other things.

The major emphasis of this study is the commercial production of soya beans flour. Soy flour proteins are useful as raw material in the food industry, in flour and grits, as concentrates and as isolates. Soy flour serves an important function in controlling colour in foods. The flour may decrease or enhance colour, if under natured Soy flour is used as a bleaching agent in bread.

The demand for the product is quite enormous and very high in Nigeria. The raw material (Soya beans) is also readily available. The production technology is simple and the equipment’s are locally fabricated.

The proposed production volume is two (2) tons/day at 100% capacity utilization and the plant would operate at 75% of the installed capacity for a single shift of eight (8) hours per day for three hundred (300) working days per annum.
