Insects are by far the most efficient source of protein. The figure below illustrates how 100 kg of feed can support a person’s daily requirement for protein. The Alphitobius diaperinus, better known as the buffalo mealworm, can deliver an incredible 151 days equivalent protein on 100 kg of feed compared to just 21 days for beef. Now that’s what we call effective nutrition.
The process of rearing insects is efficient. Protifarm multiplies this efficiency with every stacked layer by using the vertical farming method. This helps us to produce more protein per square meter of land than protein sourced from dairy and even more protein than protein sourced from beef.
