With significant concerns about the environmental impact of conventional crop and livestock production, there is a growing interest in utilising novel alternative sources of protein in both human and animal diets. Insects have long been consumed in the wild by an array of species, including poultry, fish and humans.

Insects as alternative sources of protein for food and feed provides a comprehensive overview of the recent research undertaken in this rapidly-expanding area. The book reviews the production and application of black soldier flies, yellow mealworms and other insects as alternative protein sources in poultry, pig and fish feed.

Through its considered approach, the book explores how the safety of extracted proteins can be ensured across the supply chain, as well as how we can better understand the changing attitudes of consumers towards eating protein derived from insects.

Edited by a leading expert in industry, the book will be a standard reference for university and other researchers in animal nutrition, companies involved in the manufacture of animal feed or animal nutrition services, government and other agencies regulating the animal feed sector, as well as farmers interested in utilising animal feed supplemented with insect-derived proteins.
