Silkworm pupae oil is extracted from the larva of the bombyx mori moth using a cold press process. It is an orange transparent liquid oil which is rich in alpha linolenic acid (ALA) or omega 3. The body changes the alpha linolenic acid into the longer chain fatty acids EPA and DHA, and prostacyclin. According to scientific research, silkworm pupae oil shows it has an important role in lowering blood sugar, lowering blood pressure, inhibiting thrombus and raising good cholesterol. Additionally it’s helpful to reduce inflammation and protect the liver.
Silkworm Pupae oil can be used just like any other edible oil, for example salad dressing, frying, baking, bread dippings etc. It can also be flavoured with herbs, chillis or garlic and can be used on the skin as a moisturiser or anti-inflammatory oil.
