Organic and Non-GMO Forum Short Course

Understanding What You're Buying:
A Procurement Manager's Guide

Attendees of this short course will learn the basic processing principles used in mechanical extrusion and expelling of oilseeds and other raw materials into value-added food, feed, and specialty ingredients.

This technology, which uses no chemicals in the process, can be used to process organic oilseeds, grains, and other raw materials into organic or non-GMO food and feed products. This flexible and scalable processing system produces a high-quality feed that improves livestock output and improves the quality of finished products. For food processors, this system can produce a high-quality or organic vegetable oil, textured soy protein as well as full-fat or low-fat soybean and other oilseed meal or flour.
