Fishmeal is a commercial product made from fish and the bones and offal from processed fish. It is a brown powder or cake obtained by drying the fish or fish trimmings, often after cooking, and then grinding it. If it is a fatty fish it is also pressed to extract most of the fish oil. Natural and sustainable fishmeal provides a concentrated source of high quality protein. It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, DHA, and EPA.
Sunflower meal is the by-product of the extraction of sunflower seeds oil. Sunflower meal is one of the major protein sources in livestock feed, especially dairy cattle, chickens, pigs, and rabbits. It has a high protein, fibre, and oil content. Its protein content is 29-40 %, crude fibre content is 20-23 %, lignin content is 9-12 %, and lysine content is 3.5%. Positive characteristic of sunflower meal is that it does not have any ingredients that affect nutrition in livestock, although its high fibre and lignin (the hard, woody part of the sunflower plant) tend to affect its digestibility. Furthermore, sunflower meal is a source of calcium, phosphorus, and B group vitamins.
Soybean meal is the most important protein source used to feed farm animals. Soybean meal is the by-product of the extraction of soybean oil. Soybean meal is a major source of protein used by the pig and poultry industries. Manufacturers of pet food such as dog food also use soybean meal in their manufactured diets.
