For every 100 grams of mealworm larvae, 206 calories and anywhere from 14 to 25 grams of protein are contained. Mealworm larvae contain levels of potassium, copper, sodium, selenium, iron and zinc that rival that of beef. Mealworms also contain essential linoleic acids which are good for the heart. They also have greater vitamin content by weight compared to beef, B12 not included. You can learn more from our Mealworm Care Sheet!

We can arrange for pickup at FedEx Ship Centers if temperatures are slightly outside of this range. If you need help locating a FedEx Ship Center near you that holds live animals please contact us.
