Insects oils, a new ingredient
for poultry, pig feeds
Insects are known for their protein content, but they are also rich
in lipids and other useful components.
YANNE BOLOH

M

ore than 2,100 insect species are consumed
as food or feed all over the world - and
25 have been scientifically investigated as
a feed ingredient. European regulations accept seven
species, but two represent more than 80% of scientific
literature: the mealworm (Tenebrio molitor) and the
black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens).
More than proteins, insects also contain oils, quite
similar physically to copra oil, and they may interest
feed manufacturers as they contain active components,
such as lauric acid.
Insect product producers see them as a very real solution to raw materials shortages and a means to address the
social pressure regarding forest degradation and/or genetically modified organism (GMO) raw material.

technological institute, an IPIFF member in charge of
research. "The presence of immune boosting agents,
such as antimicrobial peptides, chitin and lauric
acid, contributes to a reduction in the use of agro
pharmaceuticals."
Due to lingering bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) fears from a quarter of a century ago,
European regulations do not accept insect proteins in
poultry and swine because they consider them animal
proteins. Producers hope that regulations will soon
allow feed plants to use insect proteins and control
official methods to discriminate insect proteins from

Insect byproducts in animal feed
In feed, insect byproducts are also positioned as
sustainable ingredients with several added benefits.
"With insects, feed manufacturers may move away
from feed ingredients, which compete with food,
find local available alternative to soy and find highquality ingredients - GMO-free and organic," says
Maye Walraven, head of business development of
French insect producer Innovafeed.
As she explained, insects are not only proteins
but also lipids and frass, as was emphasized at
the International Platform of Insects for Feed and Food
(IPIFF), a workshop held in Brussels in late 2019.
"In feed, insects are more than a feed ingredient,"
