Black soldier fly larvae are clean, highly digestible, sustainable additions to pet food. Insect ingredients boost palatability, minimize the risk of allergic reactions, and are highly nutritious.
Black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) ingredients
Insects are an ancient nutrient source that have been part of the animal diet for millennia and are now increasingly recognized as a premium option in terms of quality and sustainability.
As a complete protein, BSFL contain essential amino acids, lauric acid, calcium, and prebiotic fiber which improves gut and immune health. Feed studies including insects also show improved palatability and behavioral benefits.
Help improve pet diets, health, and happiness while reducing environmental pawprints with insect ingredients.

Ideal Unsaturated Fat Profile
Fats are another integral part of a dog’s diet, providing energy, aiding in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, and promoting healthy skin and coat. BSFL boasts an ideal unsaturated fat profile with benefits in reducing inflammation and supporting heart health.
Rich in Digestible Proteins
BSFL protein ranges from 35%-45% of dried weight. Protein is a crucial component of a dog’s diet, supporting muscle development, immune function, and overall growth (NALA Health).
Improve Gut Health
BSFL fiber content ranges between 3-5% which may be beneficial to the gut flora microbiome. Strong gut flora with a healthy dose of good bacteria also means stronger immune systems (ScienceDirect).
BSFL have high lauric fatty acid content. Lauric acid has been shown to have natural antimicrobial effects. Feed trials demonstrate additional benefits such as improved fur coats and cognitive health (Pet Food Processing).
All Essential Amino Acids
BSFL provides all ten essential amino acids that dogs require. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, and having a complete profile is vital for ensuring that dogs receive well-rounded nutrition (NALA Health).
Insects are a natural part of the diet for many fish species, poultry, swine, wild birds, and even dogs and cats.
Slow roasted at low temperatures to maximize all protein and fatty acid benefits, these larvae support cognitive function, weight management and palatability.
FEED GRADE / DENSITY: 170 - 230g/L
Our finely ground meal is defatted through extrusion, making for easy inclusion of BSFL for nutritional and palatability benefits
Oil extruded from the defatted meal contains medium-chain fatty acids, lauric acid, omega 3 and omega 6. BSFL oil works well as a health-promoting oil for monogastric species like poultry and swine.
Live BSF Larvae
Live black soldier fly larvae are the most sustainable, natural way to feed poultry, fish, swine, reptiles, exotic birds, and more. With no processing or drying, the full spectrum of bioavailable nutrients are available to animals. Live larvae promote animal health and positive behavior by simulating natural feeding environments.
