Microbial community assessment of mealworm larvae (Tenebrio molitor) and grasshoppers (Locusta migratoria migratorioides) sold for human consumption.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that a processing step with a microbiocidal effect is required to avoid or minimize risks involved with the consumption of edible insects. Expand
Interaction between fat type and lysolecithin supplementation in broiler feeds.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the improvements that can be made with lysolecithin supplementation are highly dependent on the fat incorporated in broiler feeds, both in vitro and in vivo. Expand
Bacterial community dynamics during cold storage of minced meat packaged under modified atmosphere and supplemented with different preservatives.
TLDR
A relatively similar bacterial community was obtained regardless of the manufacturing batch and the preservative used, with Lactobacillus algidus and Leuconostoc sp. Expand
Microbial Community Dynamics during Rearing of Black Soldier Fly Larvae (Hermetia illucens) and Impact on Exploitation Potential
TLDR
The next decade promises to be extremely interesting for this research field and will see an emergence of the microbiological optimization of H. illucens as a sustainable insect for industrial rearing and the exploitation of its microbiome for novel biotechnological applications. Expand
Microbial Dynamics during Industrial Rearing, Processing, and Storage of Tropical House Crickets (Gryllodes sigillatus) for Human Consumption
TLDR
The results can be used in the construction of a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) plan and of a Novel Food dossier, which is required in Europe for edible insects, and confirm the shelf-life period which was determined by the rearer. Expand
Metagenetic analysis of the bacterial communities of edible insects from diverse production cycles at industrial rearing companies.
TLDR
It is implicate that at least for cricket rearing, production cycles of constant and good quality in terms of bacterial composition can be obtained by different rearing companies, however, for mealworms however, more variation in Terms of microbial quality occurs between companies. Expand
Suitability of microwave drying for mealworms (Tenebrio molitor) as alternative to freeze drying: Impact on nutritional quality and colour.
TLDR
For mealworms microwave drying can be a proper alternative to freeze drying, and the fat fraction of freeze dried mealworms showed a higher oxidation status than the fat of microwave dried Mealworms. Expand
Microbial counts of mealworm larvae (Tenebrio molitor) and crickets (Acheta domesticus and Gryllodes sigillatus) from different rearing companies and different production batches.
TLDR
It is shown that large variations were found between batches from individual rearers and as a consequence, no overall differences between rearers could be observed. Expand
Protein fortification with mealworm (Tenebrio molitor L.) powder: Effect on textural, microbiological, nutritional and sensory features of bread
TLDR
Results of sensory analyses revealed that protein fortification of bread with MP significantly affected bread texture and overall liking, as well as crust colour, depending on the substitution level, suggesting that the production of breads with MP might easily be scaled up at industrial level. Expand
Microbial dynamics during production of lesser mealworms (Alphitobius diaperinus) for human consumption at industrial scale.
TLDR
The results suggested that the feed is an important determinant of the insect bacterial community, but that some bacterial species show a competitive advantage inside the insect gut and become dominant. Expand
