At Biteback, we use edible insect to transform biomass into high quality nutrients and bio-materials primarily focus on lipid derived products.
Biteback has developed a proprietary refining technology to process extracted fats from edible insects into functional ingredients like cooking oil, butter, fatty alcohol, and biofuel. This is a much more sustainable option than palm oil – 150 tonnes of insect oil can be produced on one hectare of land per year. Palm oil in comparison can produce just 4 tonnes of oil per year within the same area. With over 50% of packaged goods currently containing palm oil, we see the demand will keep increasing as population continue to grow and needs to looking for an alternative beyond traditional vegetable sources.
In the last 25 years, Indonesia has lost 31 million hectares of forest due to deforestation for palm oil production - an area almost equal in size of Germany. Insect oil is also a healthy option as contains more unsaturated fats, essential nutrients, and has a high percentage of key fatty acids including omega 3, 6, and 9.
