Unique usage for feeding insects

Insect farming is a growing industry, which includes processes that revolve around breeding certain insects like crickets, bugs etc. These are kept as livestock as food for animals and in some countries as food for humans. One of the challenges in breeding such livestock is to feed them with the right amount of food. Hydrocolloids such as Agar & Carrageenan provide effective solutions to feeding water to insects.

Agar Agar

Agar Agar provides crickets and other feeder insects with a safe, clean water source in a convenient gel form. This easy-to-use formula eliminates many of the problems associated with traditional watering methods, such as the formation of deadly bacteria and loss through drowning. Due to its unique characteristics, Agar has gained tremendous importance in the field of cricket farming.


Carrageenan in its gel form is an excellent source of feed for crickets and other insects. It is usually given in a transparent, gel-based water like form. It is an efficient and easy to implement alternative to conventional watering methods that poses threats like formation of deadly bacteria, and loss of livestock due to drowning.
