This product is an 'etical product' because it contains insect larvae (BSF), which is a sustainable alternative to other animal protein sources.
Insects are a particularly sustainable form of animal protein. This is because insect:
• Need little space
• Grow quickly and efficiently
• Can grow on organic waste streams
• Do not produce methane
By replacing a part of the meat that is used in our mixes with insects, the product becomes much more sustainable! The great thing of insects is that, in addition to being sustainable, it is also a very high-quality protein source with a good amino acid profile.
The insects that are used are Black soldier flies (Hermetia illucens), often abbreviated as BSF. These larvae have a greyish color, which can also be seen in the color of the mixes.
