Mealworms for cooking

Advantages with mealworms

  • Mealworms thrive on residues; at our farm it’s organic wheat bran and potatoes or carrots from Danorganic (which is an organic vegetable wash- and packing house). In this way, mealworms help reduce waste.
  • Mealworm don’t drink water. They are so efficient at recycling liquids, that they only need what they get from the vegetables. Mealworms can extract water from the air, too.
  • Mealworms convert residues to high quality food for humans and feed for animals.

  • Mealworms do this job in a splendid way, which is healthy for the environment, as it emerges much less CO2 in the process than, as an example cattle do.

  • Mealworms are easy to produce anywhere. When we grow our food locally, we save on transport costs.
