Ackerson, C.W., Borchers, Raymond and Mussehl, F.E. (1948). Trypsin inhibitor. VII. Comparative nutritive value of raw and heated soybean meal for poults (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 156)
I. The trypsin inhibitor contained in one-half of a lot of soybean meal was destroyed by autoclaving at 15 pounds for 20 minutes. 2. This portion of the meal when fed at a level of 24 per cent to newly hatched poults gave a significantly greater gain in five weeks than did an equal amount of meal in which the inhibitor had not been destroyed. 3. The difference in growth is attributed to the destruction of the trypsin inhibitor.
