ŸnMeal™

A new high performance protein for a world feed and food market

March 2020
Gallery ŸnMeal™ 1

01.

Identification

Ÿnsect protein ŸnMeal™ demonstrates outstanding performance scientifically tested, with an increase in yield by up to 35% in aquaculture and up to 40% reduction of cumulative mortality.

ŸnMeal™ is obtained by processing larvae of a mealworm (Tenebrio Molitor), reared on vegetal by-product. Insects comprise up to 40% of the natural food intake by fish, shrimps, chicken and pigs. Insects are part of a natural diet where they deliver an important source of high-quality protein and polyunsaturated fats. Premium proteins are necessary to maintain good health. Ÿnsect ŸnMealTM meets their nutritional requirements while offering easy digestibility and palatability. With the global population expected to grow to nine billion by 2050, current aquaculture and animal feeding practices are unsustainable. Compared to alternative animal and crop-based protein sources, insect farming is environmentally friendly: low greenhouse gas emissions, ocean biodiversity preservation, and dramatic improvements in land use productivity. Insects provide a new, natural, sustainable, and responsible resource to meet animal nutrition, pet food and agriculture supply needs while being carbon negative.
