Why insect protein?
Insects can quickly convert large quantities of low-quality biomass such as organic waste into high-quality proteins. The insect fertilizer can be used as a soil improver, similar to compost. Insect farming thus contributes to a circular economy.
Insects need far less of our natural resources such as water and land to produce a kilogram of protein. The CO2 emissions are also very low compared to other protein sources.
LESS WATER REQUIRED TO PRODUCE 1KG OF PROTEIN
Have you ever heard that a dog is allergic to insects? We neither!
Because insects are rarely used as a protein source in pet food, the chance is very small that a dog has developed an allergy to this.
PURE & NATURAL
Free of antibiotics & growth hormones
Insects are grown without the use of antibiotics and growth hormones. This is in contrast to their frequent use in the bio-industry.
The production of insect to protein takes place at 1 location, so there are no transports until the final processing of the protein. As a result, there is no chance of contamination with pathogens.
