The PCA showed that the protein and ﬁbre concentrations were inversely proportional to fat concentration in the larvae. The company Micronutris recommend a label like the following: « Contains allergens similar to crustacean ». Herein we present the 312 Mb draft genome assembled using 10x Genomics linked-read technology to inform research efforts and to provide resources to optimise yellow mealworm for mass production and consumption. Article/chapter can not be redistributed. of Tenebrio molitor for people who are particularly sensitive to crustacean has been reported in several studies: it is characterized by symptoms such as rhinitis, asthma, and contact urticaria. Abstract Central to the conceptual basis of ecological immunity is the notion that immune effector systems are costly to produce, run, and ⁄ or maintain. A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE EFFICACY OF Tenebrio molitor LARVAE AND Zophobas morio LARVAE AS DEGRADATION AGENTS OF EXPANDED POLYSTYRENE FOAM Abstract. The yellow mealworm, the larval stage of the darkling beetle Tenebrio molitor, shows great promise as an alternative source of animal protein. Article/chapter can be printed. Tenebrio molitor. Using the mealworm beetle, Tenebrio molitor, as a model we investigated two aspects of the costs of innate immunity.
