The global drive towards sustainability and improved animal health means there is a greater need for development of novel functional ingredients for the feed industry. As the requirements for animal protein for livestock feed and human consumption grows, the use of insect products as animal feed has been gaining increasing attention.

- Considers in-depth nutritional and safety aspects of insects for feed;
- Reviews suitability of insects as feed for different animal species and development stages;
- Identifies the challenges related to regulation and legislation, consumer perception and acceptance, and commercialization of insects.
