Soy flakes are flat, irregularly shaped flakes derived from soybeans after the oil has been removed. Often called white flakes, soy flakes are used for further processing into soy isolates, soy concentrates and textured soy products for use in the food industry and pet food industry.
Soy grits can be used in fermentation and also in combination with other foods to add protein and texture to food items such as breads, cookies and cereals. Soy grits can also be used as a meat substitute or filler, depending upon the size range. Grits are a high protein ingredient in pet food, aquaculture and livestock feed formulations.
