AME values in black soldier fly meal for quail

A meta-analysis of the equations used to predict metabolizable energy values in black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens)meal used in Japanese quail

The main concern regarding the future of food supply and agriculture focuses on whether global systems will be able to feed humanity sustainably by 2050. While managing and accommodating the demand for  agricultural commodities.

In recent years,insects have been identified as a promising source of protein and energy for animal feed.

Several insect species have been tested as ingredients in bird feed, with black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens) larvae presenting itself as one of the most promising options. Their strong potential as alternative feed ingredients is based on the possibility to control their lifecycle and achieve their mass production. In addition to this, black soldier fly larvae contain large amounts of protein, lipids and essential amino acids such as methionine and lysine.

However, having reliable information on the nutrient content and digestibility of black soldier fly larvae is essential for the adequate formulation of diets. The application of in vivo assays to determine BSFL meal digestibility represents an expensive, time-consuming, and impractical tool through which feed mills can obtain accurate estimates for feed formulation.
