Australian Freeze Dried Blackworms

Australian Freeze Dried Blackworms are a great source of protein and received well by all types of aquarium fish. In fact sometimes when feeding australian blackworms they can be received a little too well and fish will sometimes refuse other foods. It is for this reason we do not recommend them as a ‘staple’ diet. They are best fed as part of a varied diet.

The worms go through the same cleaning and purging procedure as if they were going to be fed live. The worms are then frozen in 2.5 kg blocks and loaded into the Cuddens freeze drier. A vacuum pump takes all the air out of the chamber and then raises the temperature from minus 20deg C to 50deg C .

In a vacuum, water will boil at 0 deg C. So as the frozen worms start to thaw, all moisture turns to a vapour and then refrozen on coils inside the chamber. The process is a little bit more complicated then that, but that is the basis of how it is done.

Most importantly, the freeze drying process is that it will remove all the moisture from the worms without altering the nutritional facts of the product.

The whole process of growing, cleaning and processing the worms is done at the one location insuring the best possible product.

For those that may want to try culturing their own live blackworms. HERE is an interesting read about how to do so.
