Why feed with EnterraGrubs™?

IT’S NUTRITIOUS

The dried grubs are rich in prebiotics, essential amino acids and digestible lipids. They’re also high in calcium and have an optimal calcium:phosphorus ratio which helps with the efficient absorption of calcium from the grubs.

IT’S HIGH QUALITY

You can feel good about selling EnterraGrubs™ to your customers. Being grown in North America with regulated feedstock, EnterraGrubs™ and our facility are regulated, inspected, and approved by the following agencies: U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and the American Association of Feed Control Officials (AAFCO).

IT’S SUSTAINABLE

The Black Soldier Fly (BSF) larvae that make up EnterraGrubs™ are fed a 100% plant-based diet from pre-consumer food waste. This renewable insect ingredient has much less of an impact on our environment compared to existing alternatives. If you’re looking for a product with sustainable benefits, EnterraGrubs™ is for you and your customers.

  • No political pressures
  • No tariffs

How It's Made

EnterraGrubs™ are sustainably grown and processed in our large commercial scale facility. Each Black Soldier Fly is raised from egg to grub, harvested and quality inspected.

Here’s how we take the BSF from production to feed ingredient:

1
Create
Feedstock

We develop a nutritional slurry made up of pre-consumer food waste (fruits, vegetables and grains). Once processed, the slurry gets stored in large tanks that are monitored for nutrition and safety.

2
Raise
Larvae

Our feedstock is fed into the trays that larvae are grown in. We feed larvae at a set schedule to maximize growth and animal welfare, including maintaining an optimal temperature and moisture.

3
Separate Organic
Fertilizer

The insect frass is separated from the larvae and processed as an organic fertilizer that helps with plant nutrition, EnterraFrassTM.

4
Process Larvae to
Optimal Moisture

We harvest the larvae, swiftly processing and heat-treating them to ensure optimal moisture content is reached.

5
Process Our Products

A portion of the larvae is kept whole for EnterraGrubsTM.

6
Perform Final
Quality Tests

The finished products are put through a final quality check for pathogens and nutritional content at our warehouse. Then, we send samples to a third-party lab to ensure we’re meeting all food safety standards and regulations.

7
Package Products
for Sale

Our quality ingredients are packaged and made available for customers.

8
Some of the Larvae
Matures and Breeds

A portion of the larvae are redirected to the breeding area where they develop into prepupae, then flies. The flies mate and lay eggs.

9
Hatch and
Incubate

The eggs get collected and transported to the hatchery, where they grow into larvae and a new cycle begins.

Quality Assurance

To ensure EnterraGrubs™ adhere to the high quality and safety standards listed in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and American Association of Feed Control Officials (AAFOC) regimes, production facilities are regularly checked for heavy metals, mycotoxins, PCBs, dioxins, E. coli, Salmonella and total microbial load.
