Fat that’s fit for treats and highly palatable

EnterraOil™ is a healthy fat ingredient made entirely from Black Soldier Fly larvae. Because of its unique unsaturated vs. saturated fat ratio, it maintains the consistency of butter and needs to be heated for use as an ingredient. It’s best served as an energy source, either mixed right into pet food or animal feed or used as a tasty coating (like a post-extrusion spray) applied for enhanced palatability.

Why feed with EnterraOil™?

IT’S NUTRITIOUS

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.

IT’S SUSTAINABLE

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.

IT’S NATURAL

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%.

IT’S FUNCTIONAL

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.

How it's made

EnterraOil™ is sustainably grown and processed in Rocky View County, Alberta, Canada. Each Black Soldier Fly is raised from egg to grub, harvested and quality inspected.

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

  • BSF adults emerge from our broodstock larvae
  • BSF adults mate and allow us to harvest eggs
  • BSF larvae are raised from egg to prepupae
  • BSF larvae are harvested (small % move into reproduction phase for next generation)
  • BSF are dried
  • BSF are inspected for quality assurance
  • BSF are ready to be heated and included in your pet food and treats

Quality Assurance

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.
