    How BSF is ‘closing the loop’ by building a zero-waste food system

    The global climate crisis and the growing human population present an existential threat never encountered before. Harnessing nature’s solutions like the BSF’s unique traits to mimic nature and create a circular bioeconomy with proper waste management systems is essential...

    New Study: Fungi-derived mycoprotein delivers optimal protein and fiber

    Published in Food Research International, the study reveals that fungi-derived mycoprotein has high protein digestibility and gut fermentability of dietary fibres. Notably, certain strains studied outperformed the protein digestibility of Quorn mycoprotein. While fungi have always been a natural part...

    Maximizing performance, a necessary transition to BSF ingredients

    The transition from fishmeal to insect-based ingredients in aquaculture nutrition represent a huge shift in the industry. The availability of fishmeal has reached its limit and cannot support this rate of overfishing, positively leading to much more sustainable solutions...

    Why education is key to promoting insects as food and feed

    Insect education creates a sense of empowerment and resilience among communities worldwide. As people gain the knowledge and skills to rear, process, and utilize insects, they become less reliant on traditional food systems that can be inefficient and unsustainable....

    Insect meals as a source of functional and bioactive compounds

    Today, insects from order Orthoptera, Coleoptera and Diptera represent the most prevalent groups of insects which are used as an alternative feedstuff, either as a full fat insect meal, defatted insect meal, or insect derived oil. Their inclusion is...

    Insect meal as a tool for reducing the environmental impact of livestock production

    Similar to livestock production, the top two impact hotspots in BSF production are energy and feed, indicating that using a clean energy mix, and making efficiencies and optimising feed formulae for the BSF will make the biggest saving in...

    From waste stream to alternative protein – Preserving food by-products for animal feed

    High-moisture by-products generated by the food industry are abundant and rich in nutrients. However, these perishable ingredients present challenges when it comes to storage, transport, handling, and utilization on the farm. Implementing a multi-step process that spans every phase...

    Mealworms: Low ash content with an interesting mineral profile for pet food recipes

    Added to pet food recipes, mealworm-based products help pet food product meet the nutritional recommendations set by the AAFCO and the FEDIAF, with a balanced, rich, high-quality ingredient. Mealworms could be the one-size-fit-all solution to premium, high-protein pet food...

    Ensuring quality, feed safety and hygiene: A commitment to excellence

    The production of insects and the use of insect-based products in animal feed is growing worldwide and safety issues related to insect farming and processing remain a major concern for the feed industry such as pet food, aquafeed, livestock...

    The rise of alternative proteins in animal nutrition

    Due to the world's increasing need for food and climatic and environmental issues, the food sector in general, and the animal production industry in particular, is undergoing a significant change in terms of sustainability and efficiency. In this period, it is of great importance to reduce the dependence on traditional protein sources and to search for alternative food sources. In this context, different alternative protein sources stand out as...

    A step from plastics to proteins larvaes that eat plastic

    Let’s be positive and dream about the future. We are not so far away from long-distance space trips. When we are talking about circularity on earth, it is nice to have, but when we are talking about long-distance space trips then circularity is a must have. Then it is mandatory to build a type of circular system where waste from one process becomes a resource or materials for another one and re-enter the system....
