H-Oil is a high-quality purified insect oil extracted from our Black Soldier Fly Larvae (Hermetia illucens) produced in Vietnam.

H-Oil can be blended into a variety of animal feeds being ideal for livestock (pigs, sheep…) and petfood, and is a sustainable and healthy source of energy, containing a high proportion of fatty acids while being easily digested. 

But that is not all. H-Oil has other applications, and can be used as an organic pesticide, and also in the making of cosmetics products.

Entobel H-Oil

Our insect-based H-Oils are non-pathogenic and do not pose a risk for human, animal or plant health. Black Soldier Flies do not transmit human, animal or plant pathogens, and are neither protected species or invasive alien species. Larvae are washed and dried under strict environmental conditions. 

H-Oil is guaranteed to be free of GMOs, Hormones and Antibiotics. It is also Hypoallergenic. 

H-Oil is a natural source of protein, vitamins & minerals and fibres.

made from defatted and dried Black Soldier Fly larvae can be used in animal feed
formulations and cosmetics.




Eleven fatty acids are detected in Black Soldier Flies Larvae Oil, making it superior to its vegetable counterparts and similar to fish meal: Lauric, Myristic, Palmitic, Stearic, Arachidic, Palmitoleic, Oleic, Linoleic, g-Linolenic, Arachidonic, Eicosapentaenoic. 


BSFL are also rich in fibers with prebiotic effects. It feeds and nourishes the good bacteria that exist naturally in the guts of living creatures, while helping to suppress the bad bacteria.


BSFL-based products are a goldmine of minerals, containing: Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Potassium, Iron, and more. 

What animals
can consume


H-Oil fits perfectly into the poultry diet, instead of more traditional sources of protein such as soy. This can represent 10 to 15% of the food consumed by roosters and chickens, a more natural diet eliminating the need of soy. 


Soy and fish are an unnatural diet for farm animals, contrary to insects such as the BSFL. Our insect meals have been found to be suitable ingredients in growing pigs diets, being especially valuable for its amino-acid, lipid, and calcium. 


Insect proteins from Black Soldier Fly Larvae contain all essential amino acids that carnivores like dogs need, as well as calcium, iron, and B-complex vitamins. H-Oil can be rubbed on your domestic animal treats for extra nutrition and texture. 


Our H-Oil is also suitable to the use of zoos to feed specialized and endangered insectivores, such as lizards and reptiles.


The larvaes used in fish food constitute a sustainable substitute for fishmeal and vegetable oils.​ As such, the EU legislation permits the use of processed animal protein (PAP) from insects in aquaculture since 2017. Studies have shown that fish raised on black soldier fly meals grow as fast as those raised on a traditional fishmeal diet, with 0 negative effects on the end-consumer.


Our insect oils can easily be mixed with other feed components, such as ground grains and soy. 

Our insect oils provide an environmentally friendly way of producing high-quality bio-based materials that can be implemented for cosmetic applications.

The use of insects for animal meals tremendously reduces the ecological and economic footprint of feed, contributing to more sustainable animal husbandry systems. It takes only 1 acre of Black Soldier Fly Larvae SFL to grow the same amount of protein as 3,000 acres of cattle and 130 acres of soybeans! Moreover, compared to beef farming, farming fly larvae produces 25 times less greenhouse emissions per kilogram, and just over 20 times less water per litre.

It leads to lower greenhouse gas emissions than other feed productions, and recycle organic waste.
