Insect oil to boost
poultry and swine's health and growth

The Black Soldier Flies reared by InnovaFeed are a natural source of fatty acids for poultry and swine, that supplies each of the vital nutrients to support health and growth, whilst boasting the lowest environmental impact available on the market.

In addition to boosting health and growth, insect oil is an alternative to imported vegetable oils requiring very limited lands and water to be produced.

InnovaFeed’s insect oils are obtained through an innovative and proprietary mechanical process that requires no solvent and guarantees the complete separation from the protein. Hence InnovaFeed’s insect oils are authorized in all types of animal feed formulations as stipulated in the EU regulations.

A performant, sustainable and natural source of nutrients

Trials performed both in research station and commercial farms demonstrate that InnovaFeed’s insect oils are a performant, sustainable and natural source of fatty acids for swine and poultry.

  • Performant – our Black Soldier Fly oil ingredients are highly digestible, rich in medium chain fatty acids and in particular lauric acid allowing farmers to maximise animal welfare and productivity
  • Sustainable – dual effect demonstrated by a recent Life Cyle Analysis performed by leading consultants Quantis: a low carbon footprint and a positive impact on biodiversity.
  • Natural – by placing the insect back at the heart of food chains and let it play its natural upcycler role.

InnovaFeed insect oil is rich in lauric acid known for its anti-microbial properties, has been demonstrated to improve the gut health and animal welfare for swine and poultry.

CASE STUDY

June 2020: InnovaFeed launches the first insect-powered chicken value chain in the world

This world premiere results from the close collaboration of an entire value chain from farm to fork brought together by InnovaFeed. Players combined their know-how and expertise to provide consumers with a natural and sustainable poultry for which 100% of soybean oil present in their diet was replaced by insect oil.

The approach was explained to the consumers thanks to a dedicated marketing and labeling. Sales team in Auchan supermarkets were also specifically trained and received positive feedback from consumers curious to learn more about this initiative.

Feed formulator and farmer Nealia outlined that the replacement of soybean oil by InnovaFeed’s insect oil had a positive impact on poultry growth, health and welfare.

Following the launch of this pioneering value chain, ODG Malvoisine filed a request to include insect oil within Label Rouge poultry specifications.

In December 2020, InnovaFeed announced the launch of another world premiere thanks to a partnership with Le Porcilin to commercialise swine fed with InnovaFeed’s insect oil in January 2021.
