Product Definition: Yellow mealworm (Tenebrio molitor) contains many minerals e.g. phosphorus, potassium, iron, sodium, aluminum etc. and various microelement, also with 16 kinds essential amino acids for animal growth, each 100g dried mealworm contains amino acid up to 847.91 mgs, protein content up to 50-60%, fat content up to 30%, its nutrient composition stands top one among kinds of animal feed. Thus microwave dried or freeze dried mealworm is easy to store as superior food for poultry, birds, snakes and aquatic animal etc.
Ⅱ Application： Pet food
Ⅲ Technical Spec:
Ⅳ Application test :
Professor Liu from Shandong Agricultural University did an application test as below:
Two teams chickens feed for five months
1. one team 1000 chickens, dried yellow mealworm feed
2. another team 1000 chickens, dried fishmeal feed
Test result :
1. The team feed yellow mealworm, its survival rate improved by 5%, weight gain rate improved by 13%
2. The team feed yellow mealworm, average chick save RMB 0.50 medicine fee.
For yellow mealworm contained antibacterial peptide, which is natural formation antibacterial material of animal defense system, able to promote animal grow, decrease fatality rate, a natural material to replace antibiotics. So breeding plants and farmers are willing to accept such natural nutritious feed.
Ⅴ Potential Application Value
Yellow mealworm could further processed into insect protein powder to substitute traditional fishmeal, completely solve animal food medicine residual problem and heavy metal pollution problem. For along with rapid development of animal husbandry countries, animal protein feed resources comes into crisis. The tradition fishmeal is gradually exhausted along with marine resources, its output decrease by 10% a year. Moreover, due to marine environment pollution, as fishmeal production raw material, such mixed fishes contain more heavy metal, exceed standard already, which has been an important factor to hazard animal food safety. Thus animal husbandry farmers in many countries, considering animal food safety and own economic interests, turn animal protein feed resource from fishmeal to insect powder. Another reason, antibacterial peptide contained by insects, which is natural formation antibacterial material of animal defense system, a natural material to replace antibiotics, sulfa and hormone drugs into animal feed, an active substance to eliminate animal food drugs residual.
