Why feed with EnterraOil™?
EnterraOil™ is an emerging pet food and animal feed ingredient because of its unique fatty acid profile and resultant antimicrobial properties from its significant amount of lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid.
EnterraOil™ has a drastically lower impact on the environment than animal-based ingredients due to its renewable insect ingredients. Our Black Soldier Flies are fed a 100% plant-based diet, and need very little land or water—making it one of the most sustainable sources of protein in the world.
Did you know that insects are a natural component in the diets of many wild animals? Even wild cats and wolves turn to insects when larger prey become scarce. In the wild, these animals will include an average of 10-15% insects in their diets. With 40% oil in each larvae, this means a good inclusion rate to start with in pet food is 4-6%.
EnterraOil™ also has functional benefits related to the health aspects of animals. Over 40% of the fatty acids are medium-chain fatty acids (lauric and caprylic acid), which have proven antimicrobial characteristics.
To ensure EnterraOil™ adheres 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.
