Dried insect protein comes from mealworms; they are raised in France. Proteins are essential because they are the main building blocks of all cells in the body. These are chains of amino acids that can be found in muscles, skin, nails, body hair, blood, etc. These are also the basis of many hormones, enzymes and antibodies and are necessary for the growth, repair and defense of body tissues.

White rice completes the energy supply and also helps give shape and consistency to the croquette.
The fat intake comes from rapeseed oil. The latter is composed of more than 60% of monounsaturated fatty acids. Above all, it is very rich in omega 3s, and particularly in alpha-linolenic acid, as well as vitamin E, which gives it nourishing and antioxidant properties.
