Abstract

Due to their properties and applications, the growing demand for chitin and chitosan has stimulated the market to find more sustainable alternatives to the current commercial source (crustaceans). Bioconverter insects, such as Hermetia illucens, are the appropriate candidates, as chitin is a side...

Abstract

A 60-day feeding trial was conducted to evaluate the effects of yellow mealworm (YM) (Tenebrio molitor) (9%, 18%, 27% and 36%) and black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) (Hermetia illucens) (7%, 14%, 21% and 28%) meal replacing fish meal (FM) on growth performance and antioxidant capacity of red claw...

Abstract

Nutritional value of black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens) larvae (BSFL) processed by three different methods of treatment was compared. The resulting products were the spray-dried BSFL (SPR), oven-dried BSFL 1 (OVN1) and oven-dried BSFL 2 (OVN2). Proximate chemical composition, and profiles of...

AbstractFull Text

This study was conducted to determine the effects of feeding black soldier fly larvae meal (BSFLM) and poultry meal (PM) on production performance, acceptability of eggs through sensory evaluation, digestibility of dietary energy, fat, and protein in post-peak Babcock white layer chickens. A total...

Abstract

Searching alternative protein sources in fish feeds is essential for aquaculture sustainability, and insect-based meals arise as a promising option. The objective of this study is to assess the possible impact that the inclusion of insect meal on the tench (Tinca tinca) diet would have on the...

Abstract

The present work employed a systematic review and meta-analysis to quantify the overall effects of various types of insect meal on special growth rate (SGR), feed conversion ratio (FCR) and protein efficiency ratio (PER) of aquatic animals. A total of 107 studies published from 1990 to 2021,...

Abstract

We examined the nutritional value of different diets on the longevity and reproductive performance of black soldier flies (Hermetia illucens) under laboratory conditions. In addition to water only (W) (control group), four diets were used: sugar and water (SW); pollen, sugar, and water (PSW);...

Abstract

With the general objective of optimizing internal nutrient recycling, circular multitrophic food production systems, e.g., combining fish, plant, and insect larvae production, rely on the quality and composition of sustainable nutritional inputs. Therefore, differences in dissolved and solid...

Abstract

The black soldier fly (BSF), Hermetia illucens (Diptera: Stratiomyidae), has become one of the most economically important insects that can be a sustainable replacement for traditional feed for swine, poultry, and aquaculture. Despite its emerging importance, studies examining the nutritional...

Abstract

Black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) are able to utilise a broad range of organic wastes to fulfil their growth needs. To acquire this basic knowledge of its digestive adaptation to various food, five organic wastes (soybean meal [SBM], wheat bran [WB], beer yeast [BY], kitchen waste [KW] and chicken...
