Soya beans are predominantly grown in both North & South America in more temperate and warmer climates. The beans are harvested and delivered to the crush plant for crushing with the subsequent crude soya oil extracted, which can be used directly for animal feed with its high linoleic acid content or refined by means of physical or alkali refining. As part of the refinery process soya acid oil is produced and is used as a raw material in Goldstar Vegetable Oil Blends.
