1. INSECTS ARE EXCELLENT FOR THE HEALTH OF OUR ANIMALS
Formulated by veterinarians specializing in animal nutrition, insect kibbles provide your pet with everything it needs. High in protein, insects are excellent for dogs and cats from a nutritional point of view. In addition, their proteins are rich in amino acids, which gives them a premium quality. Insects also contain a lot of omega 3, omega 6 and essential fatty acids, which will keep your pet healthy!
2. INSECTS ARE DELICIOUS
And yes, insects are delicious! We are now proud of the delicious taste of our supplements that convert new Hello Jackers every day!
3. INSECTS ARE HIGHLY DIGESTIBLE AND HYPOALLERGENIC
Being rich in proteins and amino acids is good, but our animals must be able to digest them! Insect meal is more digestible than fish meal, which is known for its digestibility. This allows our dogs to take full advantage of all the good nutrients that insects provide while avoiding digestive problems for the most sensitive. The little extra? The insect protein is hypoallergenic for dogs!
4. INSECTS ARE RAISED ETHICALLY
Unlike cows, pigs, fish and other vertebrates, insects do not feel the need for space or mental stimulation. Consuming insect supplements is therefore a guarantee that the physiological and psychological needs of the animals are respected.
5. INSECTS DO NOT NEED HORMONES OR ANTIBIOTICS
There is no need to race for muscle in insects, which are not given any hormones. Moreover, insect breeding does not require antibiotics, which limits the phenomenon of bacterial resistance and thus avoids making us vulnerable to diseases.
6. INSECTS REQUIRE LITTLE WATER
According to INRA, it takes 700 liters of water or about 4 tubs of water to produce 1kg of beef. When we know that a cow weighs on average 800kg, we arrive at a staggering total of 3,013 tubs of water! Why so much water? Because cows need to drink but also to eat and the production of hectares of wheat, corn and soya requires a lot of water. Insects don't need to drink or eat much and they can be used to make good use of unsaleable food.
7. INSECTS VALORIZE FOOD WASTE
We told you, insects are not picky eaters! They love all the peelings, ugly or too old fruits and vegetables and other unsold food and thus participate in the fight against food waste.
8. INSECTS REQUIRE LITTLE SPACE TO RAISE
Raising insects in an animal welfare friendly way takes up much less space than conventional chicken, pig or cow farming. Insects also do not require large areas of farmland to feed themselves because they are able to use food waste. Why is this important? Because the space saved allows for the cultivation of cereals that will be used to feed us, the humans. And with an ever-growing world population, it will be essential to produce more food in the years to come.
9. INSECTS EMIT LITTLE GREENHOUSE GASES
Without mentioning methane, a gas with a very important greenhouse effect, which is emitted by the flatulence of cows, the breeding industry as a whole emits a lot of greenhouse gases, especially because of the feeding of the animals. Indeed, in order to produce all the food the animals need, oil-powered tractors have to go back and forth to the fields to plough, sow, treat the crops, etc. Insects, on the other hand, need much less food and use our waste!
