Insect Patee from Unica in Italy, is rich in amino acids with a high nutritional value – 23.5% protein / 9.8% fat – and contains sun-dried insects.
The protein core – the soul of this product – is a balance of insect-meal (crustaceans, molluscs, pupae, minnows and caterpillars), fermented proteins of vegetables and quality sponge cake.
Excellent cereals and vegetables of Italian origin, cold-pressed vegetable oils and fats, flowers and medicinal herbs are also included.
It is the presence of insects – micro lake crustaceans, bloodworms, moths, pinkies and water-flies that defines this patee. These ingredients are not cooked at high temperature, but rather dried in the sun for greater softness, palatability and preservation of nutritional benefits.
Unica Insect Patee can be fed all-year round or twice a week as a complementary supplement. Extremely desirable during the breeding season. It can be moistened or added to other softfoods. Also useful for coating live food before being fed to Bee Eaters and Flycatchers.
