Description

A fortified insect food that improves the nutritional value of feeder insects such as crickets, woodies and mealworms. About Feeding Insects In the wild, insectivorous animals consume a wide variety of insects with high nutritional value. In captivity, there are limited insect types available and commercial insects are often raised on nutrient-poor substrates (e.g. bran). This can lead to deficiency of vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients. Insects have no skeletal structure and are therefore a poor source of calcium, with a low ratio of calcium to phosphorus. Improving Insect Nutrition By supplying feeder insects with Insect Booster, the nutritional value of a captive animal’s diet is significantly enhanced. In feeding trials using Insect Booster, calcium to phosphorus ratio improved from 0.2 to 1.5 in crickets and from 0.1 to 1.1 in mealworms*. Likewise, levels of Vitamin A, Vitamin E and colour-enhancing carotenoids were all shown to significantly improve.
