Why our products?

According to the FAO, one of the biggest things we can do on an individual level for our planet is to breed and consume less livestock. Naturally containing all 9 essential amino acids and essential minerals and vitamins present in meat, our mealworm-based ingredients not only constitute a high-quality protein, but also a superfood, with health benefits in terms of cholesterol, digestion, and more.

Nutrition-packed and research-backed, they boost health, create tasty recipes, all the while contributing to a more sustainable future.

Nutritious superfood

Our AdalbaPro ingredients are packed with high-quality, digestible protein, as well as essential vitamins and minerals, fiber and healthy fats. Studies have shown that our protein matches the quality of whey protein, the gold standard, and can reduce cholesterol up to 60%.


Our insect ingredients constitute a natural source of high-quality protein, neutral flavors and versatile textures, offering vast clean-label food development opportunities.

Sustainable for our planet

Our ingredients use 40x less land, emit 40x fewer CO2 emissions than beef, and use 30x less water than pork, representing a protein that’s better for both us and our planet.

Versatile applications

We believe in creating tasty, recognizable products powered by our AdalbaPro ingredients. Offering a range of ingredients with a neutral taste, our ingredients deliver endless exciting and innovative opportunities for food development.
