Ag Pro, Ltd. owns and operates a soybean and oilseed processing plant in Massena, New York. Ag Pro's plant is certified organic and kosher and is capable of handling NGMO and IP oilseeds.
The plant processes soybeans into soy meal and crude soy oil. The crude oil is then processed into fully refined oil. The plant can process 150 tons of soybeans daily or over 50,000 tons yearly. It can refine over 16,000 tons of oil yearly.
Other oilseeds such as flaxseed, canola, sunflower and grapeseed can also be processed at the plant. Ag Pro is open to toll processing and R&D projects for other companies.
AG PRO's state-of-the-art oil refinery is a physical refinery, rather than a chemical refinery like most others. It produces top quality edible RBD (refined, bleached, deodorized) natural oil.
The oils produced by AG PRO are used in a wide range of products such as cooking oil, salad dressing, shortening, margarine and other non-food applications such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and other industrial applications.
Soy products have a variety of health benefits. Soy protein is beneficial in maintaining bone density in post menopausal women and for prostate and heart health. Also, Vitamin E derived from soy oil refining appears to have twice the potency of synthetically derived Vitamin E.
