Abstract

We evaluated the effect of a diet containing insect meal and insect oil on nutrient utilization, tissue fatty acid profile and lipid metabolism of freshwater Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). Insect meal and insect oil from black soldier fly larvae (Hermetia illucens, L.; BSF), naturally high in...

Abstract

Background: The aim of this trial was to investigate the effects of different inclusion levels of a partially defatted black soldier fly (BSF, Hermetia illucens L.) larva meal on the growth performance, nutrient digestibility, blood profile, gut morphology and histological features of piglets. A...

Abstract

The aquaculture industry is currently looking for alternative, sustainable diets that provide similar or better growth for the reared species. We investigated whether replacing fishmeal with yellow mealworm (Tenebrio molitor) meal in the supplied diets of the gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata),...

Abstract

A feeding trial was conducted to test the growth potential, nutritional utilization, liver health and fillet sensory parameters of sea-water Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) fed diets with increasing substitution of fish meal with insect meal. The insect meal was produced from black soldier fly...

Abstract

Black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens) meal is a potential alternative to fishmeal and plant proteins in diets for farmed fish since it can be produced on organic waste substrates, requires little energy and water inputs and contains high levels of essential amino acids. Recent studies have...

Abstract

Basic nutrition for tropical fish is undeniably lacking, mainly due to the concentration of research efforts on and funding for food fish species. However, as the marine ornamental aquaculture industry continues to grow and expand, it is now essential to direct nutritional research to mitigate the...

Abstract

Insects, a traditional food in many parts of the world, are highly nutritious and especially rich in proteins and thus represent a potential food and nutrient source. However, edible insects as an alternative protein source for human food and animal feed are uncommonly used in Europe. Few European...

Abstract

Consuming insects is an ancient food habit that is practised by approx. 2.8 billion humans in most areas of the world. In Western culture, this food habit has been largely abandoned, but its recent promotion by the FAO lead to a novel approach in Europe with the intention to establish food insect...

Abstract

Edible insects have basically gained the status of 'novel food' in the EU since 2018. (REG [EC] 2015/2283) Their taste is commonly referred to as "nutty". Most literature regarding the sensorial analysis of edible insects is based on hedonic tests or comparisons with more common foodstuffs. The...
