Silkworm Pupae


Pupae of the silkworm (Bombyx Mori), farmed in Thailand.



Silkworms have an awful lot going for them. Not only are they used to make sumptuous Thai silk garments but their pupae by-products are tasty too! Sometimes, when you feel like a late-night snack and nothing else will quite hit the mark, you find yourself craving the larvae of the domesticated silk moth. What else?

Silkworms have a crunchy exterior and, reportedly, the taste and texture of mashed potato inside when fresh! Ours can be eaten straight from the bag and are low in fat, high in protein and a great source of essential fatty acids. You can find a range of recipes using silkworm pupae on our Pinterest board.
