Nutritious reduction

3D-printing can help our canine friends walk again.

But with around 25% of US-produced meat ending up in pet food, domestic animals leave a significant carbon footprint.

Now a Canadian startup is aiming to change all that. Their all-women team makes its nutritious dog-food using a protein from the larvae of soldier flies.

These contain 9 times the omega fats of wild salmon and twice as much protein as beef. Rearing them requires 94% less land than livestock and fish.

The protein is mixed with superfoods such as seaweed, chickpeas, flax seeds and lentils. Vitamin-rich yeast supports the animals’ intestinal health.

For human tastes, these crunchy creatures are a protein-heavy alternative to meat. Cows, meanwhile, can feast on seafood waste.
