Vint: There is no universal definition and a soy-based ink could have as little as one drop of soy oil in it and as much as 100% of the oil content being soy oil. There is a set of informal standards established by the American Soybean Association addressing the minimum level of soybean oil content that allows for the use of the SoySeal logo These are the recommended percentages: Black News Ink - 40 percent of total formula weight ColorNews Ink - 30 percent of total formula weight Sheetfed Ink - 20 percent of total formula weight Heatset Ink - 7 percent of total formula weight Coldset Web Ink - 30 percent of total formula weight Business Forms Ink - 20 percent of total formula weight Soy ink may contain other vegetable oils--classified asdrying oils--but soybean oil must be the predominant oil. Vegetable drying oils may be added as needed, but they must not exceed the level of soybean oil set forth in the respective formulation. You can obtain more information about the SoySeal logo by contacting Jo Patterson at soyink@soyink.com, 800/747-4275, or at their web page www.soyink.com. Gary Jones
