Abstract

Interest in insects as feed ingredients in poultry, swine and rabbit is growing rapidly. The protein fraction has been studied most, but research on other nutrients from insects and a deeper understanding of beneficial aspects of the use of insects is gaining traction. Since September 2021 it is legally allowed to include insect proteins in feed for poultry and pigs and the number of publications on applications of insect products in these livestock animals is increasing. Publishing open access ensures the engagement of all stakeholders in the insect chain and parties involved in using the end products in animal feed. For this reason, the Journal of Insects as Food and Feed has composed an open access special issue focussing on applications of insect products in monogastric animal nutrition. The special issue touches on aspects related to nutrition, health, welfare, safety, socio-economic and consumer issues.
