Black soldier flies are resource insects and environmental insects with very high utilization value. Growth in global meat demand in recent years, growth in aquaculture, and rising soybean meal prices have led to increased demand for alternative proteins in the animal feed industry. Among them, black soldier fly larvae(BSFL) are the best choice for protein replacement.

Recently, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a resolution recommending the use of BSFL in feed, which has greatly promoted the application of BSFL in animal feed.
The global black soldier fly market is expected to reach USD 2.57 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 33.33% during the forecast period from 2019 to 2030. 

Among them, Indonesia, South Africa, Spain, Canada, Malaysia, France, the United States, Chile, Germany and other countries have the most active BSFL market.

Black soldier fly application

1.Pet food:

A.Effects on fish:

Adding BSFL to the feed can enhance the immunity of the fish and prevent them from getting sick; increase the taste of the fish feed and increase the food intake of the fish; the high protein and fat content increases the growth rate of the fish Significantly faster, the volume of fish fed with ordinary feed is about 1/3 larger.

B.Effects on poultry:

The rich protein, amino acids, fatty acids and minerals in BSFL can not only improve the energy of poultry laying eggs, but also improve the quality of eggs.


Black soldier fly larvae protein (BSFLP) has high antioxidant activity and is suitable as a natural antioxidant or for the development of antioxidant functional protein foods.

3.Chemical reagents:

The lauric acid content of BSFL is as high as 53.2%, and lauric acid can be used as a raw material for the production of wetting agents, detergents, insecticides, surfactants, food additives and cosmetics.

BSFL have a wide range of applications, but live BSFL are not easy to store for a long time, and the dried BSFL can prolong the shelf life of half a year and are convenient for packaging, transportation, sales or further crushing and processing.

Drying BSFL need fast speed because the BSFL 2 hours after death will emit a foul smell. Traditional drying methods can’t be dried in short time, so microwave drying machine is the best choice for drying BSFL.

Shandong Joyang Machinery Co., Ltd. design of microwave drying is specialized for BSFL, this machine have fast drying speed, after drying the BSFL have beautiful color, it can maintain perfect appearance, the BSFL have low moisture content after drying, easy to crush, individual full, keep the original nutrients.

Black solider fly microwave drying machine feature:

1.Fast drying speed. Microwave is applied to each cell, so the drying is even and the drying speed is fast.

2.It has sterilization effect, and can improve the shelf life of black solider fly.

3.Microwave drying has a puffing effect. It’s helpful for the crushing process in the future.

4.Advanced technology, continuous production. The microwave drying machine has adjustable power and speed, no radiation, and can work continuously 365 days a year.

5.Energy saving and eco-friendly. Microwave drying machine uses clean and pollution-free electricity as an energy, and doesn’t produce exhaust gas, waste water.
