The larvae of the Black Soldier Fly are very rich in proteins and are full of essential amino acids and beneficial lipids. After they are harvested, the larvae are pasteurised, defatted, dried, and crushed. The dried powder is used in animal feed and is an excellent source of nutrients for poultry, pigs, cattle, fish, and pets. The Black Soldier Fly larvae offer an excellent alternative for fishmeal and soya and are actually a better source of nutrients for most animals. Insect farming for animal feed is expected to grow very rapidly in the coming years.
