BTD Forums  /  SWAMI Xpress  /  Searching for Non GMO Soy Bean Meal
Posted by: Seraffa, Friday, March 14, 2014, 5:13pm
Hi. I've compared my SWAMI and SWAMI Deep Blue and am happily on my first soy neutral, "Lecithin", and doing very well.

Since my gut has been healing from intolerances much better on a 40-day Pescatarian diet plan, I'd like to find some non gmo soy bean meal to purchase. I'm thinking the gmo types are the types commonly sold in feed stores for livestock, but I could be wrong!

I'm not coming up with anything on google or Amazon, and my local Whole Foods doesn't carry it. The only item I have found is Bobs Red Mill lowfat soy flour - and I don't see soy flour listed anywhere on my SWAMIs (could affect me either way...)

Soy meal has ALL of the oil pressed out of it compared to lowfat soy flour.
Any clue as to where I can get it?
This is important to me for Genoharmonics; it's not about forcing my body into accepting all soy products faster.

Are you talking about granular lecithin?  Because that's what you want to google.

Check NOW brand, Lewis Laboratories, Fearn, Solgar, Nature's Plus....so many more

.Yes, I read read the title of your thread...and I'm clueless what this product is...Never saw soybean meal sold in any health food store or anywhere...which is why I thought you possibly wanted granular lecithin.  Sorry.  :( I hope you find what you're looking for.

It seems like you need to know whether the oil was solvent or expeller removed.  Most of the remaining meal is used for feed or fertilizer, but I haven't found a way to tell whether the beans were GMO or which meal is from solvent or expeller oil removal.

(I put organic in quotes because there is a disclaimer that says the source may very or change at any time, so buyer beware!)
Here is an "Organic Soybean meal fertilizer", for instance:

Or a feed source that doesn't say anything about Organic or non-GMO...

Sorry guys.....I think I'll write to Dr. D's office on this one. It's just too much of a stretch to play around with regarding me, my past history of bulimia, and "if" these products are "good enough" not to send me into "intolerance mode."

Soybean meal is simply that. But I would like to know where Dr. D. found this stuff to even give it a rating, because I have looked high and low for this elusive product, but, as far as I'm concerned, it ain't out there, period!  I would LOVE to have some of it on hand but my luck has run out on this one.

Not that I have been looking but have you ever seen any 'bean meal'. As far as I know they come as whole beans and flour and nothing in between. Split peas would be the only 'sort of' exception I can think of.

Soybean meal is normally a waste product from making soy oil. It is readily available in large quantities.

It is used in animal feed and some commercial products.

You should not have a problem getting soybean meal if you start looking for it in 2000 pound quantities instead of a single pound. Expect to pay about $500 per short ton if you are not fussy about organic or non-gmo. Non-gmo will be around $600 per short ton.

When soy bean meal is used for human consumption most retailers choose to label soy meal as "defatted soy flour" or "low fat soy flour"

SWAMI is based in part on data from a USDA database. It is most likely called soybean meal in SWAMI because that is what the source called it. This appears to be the source: http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/foods/show/4839?fg=&man=&lfacet=&count=&max=&sort=&qlookup=&offset=&format=Stats&new=&measureby

Ahhhhhh........

Spring, - we go $300 apiece to get that big non GMO sack.

Here is soy flour defatted: http://www.myspicesage.com/soy-flour-defatted-p-572.html

And that 1.50gm fat per 3 TB of Bob's Red Mill Low Fat isn't looking bad, either.
