(Saint Louis Science Center) In GROW, Ultra High Protein Soybeans Demonstrate the Latest Agricultural Advancements from Benson Hill

October 13, 2023

Earlier this year, the Science Center partnered with local St. Louis ag tech firm Benson Hill to showcase Benson Hill’s proprietary Ultra High Protein (UHP) commercial soybeans in the GROW Gallery. There, guests can learn about how Benson Hill used traditional breeding procedures to create these high-protein soybeans, as well as their benefits for farmers, food production, and the planet.

Typical commodity soybeans used in the production of soy-based ingredients result in protein levels of around 50% after they’re processed (which involves crushing the beans, followed by a concentration step that involves additional water and energy use). Learn more here!
