Products derived from soy bean are produced from defatted soy meal (rest of soy oil production). During this process are harsh solvents needed like hexane. Removal of many beneficial phytonutrients → isolation/ extraction of single nutrients.
SoyLife® is produced from whole soy germ without using any harsh solvents. After roasting the whole germ and only mechanical processes, SL FOCUS and COMPLEX are produced.
An additional step has to be done for SL EXTRA and 40%: after mechanical process, an aqueous ethanol extraction is used therefore.
