Black soldier fly larvae oil: A possible new ingredient for pig diets
https://www.porkbusiness.com/article/bl ... -pig-diets

Excerpt:

Supplementation of black soldier fly larvae oil linearly increased pig body weight and average daily gain, resulting in an advantage of 1.3 lbs of extra body weight in pigs fed the 6% black soldier fly larvae oil compared to the control diet containing corn oil. Feed efficiency was improved when black soldier fly larvae oil was fed, but feed intake was not impacted. ...

... Based on this study, we conclude that black soldier fly larvae oil is a promising, high-energy feed ingredient that can be successfully fed to nursery pigs, while improving their growth performance. At this time, black soldier fly larvae oil is approved for use with salmonids and poultry. It is currently undergoing review by FDA for approval for use in swine.
