Soybean seed and oil company will focus on new business development of its

ULTRA low linolenic, trans fat-free products.

IOWA CITY, Iowa, May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Asoyia has finalized an agreement with two key venture capital firms, securing $4 million to expand marketing, research and development of its ULTRA low linolenic soybean products.

Asoyia's ability to meet demand depends on the participation of farmers willing to grow a specialty identity-preserved soybean in lieu of commodity soybeans or corn. The infusion of funding will allow Asoyia's pr
