Good Boy, it’s time to meet Good Bug: Black Soldier Fly Larvae. Besides being much kinder to the environment, BSFL contain 60% protein, a markedly higher protein content than beef (40%) or chicken (31%). These little grubs really pack a punch! Insect-based protein in pet food has been academically proven to be healthy and wholesome, and pets around the world have been cronching creepy crawlies for years.
Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL) are an exceptionally rich source of calcium, magnesium and zinc, as well as b-complex vitamins and trace minerals. Unlike the by-products and meat off-cuts sourced for most pet food, which usually aren’t the greatest quality, BSFL is a high-quality protein for pet food. And you have the added reassurance that it’s farmed in a considerably cleaner and more ethical way than livestock.

Black Soldier Flies are not just superfoods for dogs, they’re super heroes too.
By now you may be wondering what BSFL eat? As it turns out, they’re big fans of brewer’s yeast, a byproduct of the food-and-beverage industry. Black Soldier Flies are able to consume vast quantities of food-and-beverage industry co-products and convert these products into functional compounds. Brewer’s yeast would go to waste if not consumed by BSFL, so they’re doing us all a big favour here. BSFL, the planet thanks you!
