Industrial and Commercial Uses

Beyond being used in animal feed, the soybean is used to make many of the products people use in their homes and businesses every day.  Soybeans are used to make everything from soaps, lotions and cosmetics to glue and candles, to toner in printers and even skateboard wheels. Soy can also be found in home insulation, adhesives, resins and plastics, antibiotics, ink and biofuel. It’s an incredibly diverse plant that helps to make many needed products.
