Abstract

The challenge of feeding over 9 billion humans by 2050 requires a 'rethink' of the current linear food production system. In the view of a circular economy, insects can provide a possible solution to valorise waste to produce new foods and materials, as well as the opportunity to solve some...

Abstract

Insect meal can be a promising nutrients source in aquafeed, replacing expensive, scarce or unsustainable foods however; molecular mechanisms behind its role on fish growth remain unknown. From this point, the impact of partial or total replacement of fish meal protein with defatted black soldier...

Abstract

The expected global population growth to 9.7 billion people in 2050 and the significant change in global dietary patterns require an increase in global food production by about 60%. The protein supply for feed and food is most critical and requires an extension in protein sources. Edible insects...

Abstract

Circular economy (CE) is an approach that decouples economic activity from the consumption of finite resources, designs out waste, and instead promotes an economic model based on sharing, leasing, reuse, repair, refurbishment and recycling, in an (almost) closed loop. This extensive literature...

Abstract

Among edible insects, black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens), yellow mealworm (Tenebrio molitor), and common housefly (Musca domestica) have been considered as an alternative protein source for pigs. Because they are easy to breed and grow in the organic wastes, and they have well-balanced...

Abstract

As insect farming is becoming more popular in Europe and in the US, the use of food industry by-products in insects' feed is drawing more attention. However, it is still unclear how to maximise the use of by-products in the feeds while meeting the nutritional requirements and maintaining profitable ...

Abstract

Background: Sustainable nutrition and food security are central topics in the current global agenda. Insect production represents a promising food source that has received growing attention in the food and feed industry due to its high nutritional value and positive effect on animal health. The...

Abstract

Fish discards are organic waste with high and good-quality protein levels, as well as a fatty acid profile rich in n-3 LCPUFAs, mainly eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid. These discards can be used as food for Tenebrio molitor (Linnaeus, 1758) larvae, thus increasing the nutritional...

Abstract

As part of the current climate change debate, concerns have been raised over the rapid expansion of soybean cultivation as the major protein source to feed animals for human consumption. At the same time, insect-based protein is rapidly emerging as an alternative protein source to animal-based...

Abstract

Although insects are becoming more accepted as potential protein sources for food and feed, the appearance of the insect may be off-putting due to associations of disgust. Edible insects are more likely to be eaten if they are processed into non-recognizable forms. Thus, insects require the use of...
