Great study by my colleagues in South Africa!
As you know, a number of studies have been published on the production of BSF or its use as a feed ingredient; however, few have take this work to the next level and examined the impact of including BSF as part of a diet on the flavor and other characteristics of the livestock consuming it.
Well, our colleagues have done such a study for poultry.
Elsje, P., E. S. W, U. Tulimo, and H. L. C. Black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens) pre-pupae meal as a dietary protein source for broiler production ensures a tasty chicken with standard meat quality for every pot. Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture 0.
Their results indicate including 15% BSF in the diet of poultry (broiler) flavor or other characteristics! Nice job!
So my question... how high can we go with inclusion of BSF as part of a broiler's diet?
Individuals with over 25 years research experience with the black soldier fly. We are passionate about the science behind the black soldier fly and its ability to convert waste to protein.
