EARTHWORM MEAL, HIGH BIOLOGICAL VALUE

The composition of the worm meal, which can contain up to 70% of proteins of high biological value, makes this annelid appear as one of the great solutions to the nutritional problems of livestock farming.

Worm meal outperforms fishmeal and soybean meal. It is used in fish, poultry and other domestic animals such as pigs. Experiences around the world tell us that supplementing backyard hens’ feed with three earthworms daily leads to a significant increase in egg production.

In pig, poultry and fish farms, the use of this food supplement provides higher quality in the final product, obtaining lean meat without altering the flavor and with totally organic products of 100% natural organic origin.

The composition of the worm meal, which can contain up to 70% of proteins of high biological value, makes this annelid appear as one of the great solutions to the nutritional problems of livestock farming. If the high protein content of worm meat is important, even more important is its amount of essential amino acids.

The high reproductive rate (doubles its population every 90 days) and the fast growth rate of the earthworm (eats daily the equivalent of its own weight), allows to produce tons of meat per hectare at a cost as no other zootechnical activity can achieve.

The possibility of transforming organic waste, which in many cases today constitutes an ecological problem, into meat of high protein value is perhaps one of the most fascinating aspects of vermiculture.
