BLACK SOLDIER FLY

FUTURE PROTEIN SOURCE

Black flies (Hermetia illucens), also known as Black Soldier Fly (BSF), are raised for many purposes, but the two main purposes are "treating biological waste, providing microbial fertilizer, larvae oil" and is "a source of protein for animal feed, aquatic feed, pet food and can be a raw material for human food production".

NUTRITION INGREDIENTS OF BSF LARVAE CHANGED BY

FEED INGREDIENTS AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS

The ratio of essential amino acids is similar to that in fish meal and the methionine content is higher than in soybean meal.

Fly larvae contain higher mineral concentrations than other insects, compared when using the same food.

The main lipid component of BSF is lauric acid with antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-infection effects.

The content of omega 3, 6, 9 is relatively high when comparing the nutritional composition with salmon oil, soybean oil, coconut oil, palm oil.

Fly larvae can be concentrated, dried, and mixed with other nutrients to make a complete replacement for fish meal in the production of animal and aquafeeds. They also supplement calcium and phosphorus for poultry, help supplement nutrients, increase resistance, stimulate good feathers, etc.

In addition, black soldier fly larvae protein is also very suitable for many other types of pets such as ornamental fish, ornamental birds, reptiles, etc.
