Preliminary research of poultry protein impact was conducted within the Poultrynsect project, and results were presented at the European Federation of Animal Science congress (EAAP2021). 

Findings

Broiler meat proteins have lower environmental cost than egg proteins. Impact of both can be lowered by substituting a part of feed with insect larvae.
