Der schwarzen Soldatenfliege
Our sustainable Larvae products
Our larvae originate from regional breeding of the black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens). The special feature of our larvae is that they help us to process organic residues into high-quality proteins, which can be ideally used for animal feed. The larvae can be fed both as fresh larvae and as dried larvae.
The living larvae of the Black Soldier Fly is characterized by a healthy yellowish color and a size of up to 2 cm. They are extraordinarily robust and can even survive for several days if stored at low temperatures. Due to the so-called defensins, the larvae possess a kind of antibiotic of their own, which enables the larvae to utilize all organic residues without health problems. Due to these defensins, our fresh larvae have an antibacterial effect when fed. Another advantage of fresh feeding is that the natural hunting instinct of some animals is promoted. Thus, our fresh larvae are particularly suitable for fish, but also for chickens or wild birds.
Since the fresh larvae start to pupate after some time and become flies, they are not suitable for long storage. This is where our dried larvae come into play, which are preserved for a long time by a gentle process. They are still an excellent protein food for all pets from dogs to parrots. Particularly noticeable in our dried larvae is the pleasant nutty aroma, both in smell and taste.
