Just bought some Repashy Soilent Green and wondered if anyone knows where the protein content comes from? I understand that it is flavorful and nutritious and made from plankton?

Hi all,
if anyone knows where the protein content comes from?
I think they are using Krill meal and <"Black Soldier fly larvae">.

This is what <"Allen Repashy"> says.
Development of Black Soldier Fly Larvae

Almost 20 years ago, while seeking alternative protein sources, Allen Repashy found the Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL, Hermetia illucens). As many scientifically inclined vivarists do, Repashy was scouring the web for scientific papers. While looking for a better feeder insect, he stumbled upon a 1994 scientific publication called “A value-added manure management system using the black soldier fly” by Dr. Craig Sheppard.

In his article, Sheppard described the nutritional value of the BSFL and Repashy noted its potential, particularly the high calcium levels and calcium/phosphorus ratio. For a reptile breeder, these are crucial values, and finding it in a natural insect could prove to be very useful to fish- and herp-keepers.......

What concerns me is what keeps it all together as a gel
I’ve played with making gel food with the vegetarian gelatin and I had it upto 50% gelatine and it still didn’t go as thick as repashy so how much actual food does it contain ?
