Pinkies (Maggots) - Frozen
Product Code: 530
Availability: In Stock
Pinkies are the most used frozen insects. If we let birds choose, they’ll often prefer this insect. It’s a maggot with a soft skin and rather tasty. Pinkies are the larvae of the Green bottle fly. The name pinkies is derived from the English word “pink” because of their pink colour when they clean themselves before they pupate.
Pinkies from our farms are bred on fresh offal from the food industry. These farms are under severe supervision of public bodies. Before the pinkies can be processed on our equipment, they have to be perfectly clean or in other words: the food which was used to breed the larva shouldn´t be present anymore in them. This process is naturally performed because; in nature, a larva stops eating when it´s time to pupate. In the end, it all adds up to a perfect timing and organisation.
Due to the boiling and shock freezing process on our equipment, the pinkies are disposed of all bacteria and become virtually sterile. The remaining fraction of bacteria and fungus is well below the standards which apply to human and animal food. This is frequently verified through analysis. The double process makes the pinkies also more digestible for animals.
