|Abstract:||The purpose of this study was to study the potential of BSF larvae to convert high moisture, pre-consumer organic vegetable matter (VRO) collected from food retailers in the Quebec City area. The VRO collected from grocery store through a partner local residual organic matter (ROM) collector (Sanimax Inc, Quebec, Canada) were characterized quantitatively (mass and frequency for different categories of VRO) and qualitatively (dry matter, ash, fibre, carbohydrates, energy, protein and fat content). Different VRO diets have been formulated to feed BSF larvae and test their effects on growth (average weight, length, width, length/width ratio and Fulton index) and the nutritional proximal composition of BSF larvae. In addition, this study establishes the conversion yield that can be expected on these materials for the production of BSF larvae. The evolution of different physicochemical parameters (temperature and pH) during bioconversion and the nutritional profile of the larvae are also presented.|
