Silkworm Selects – New!

A Daily Diet Growth Booster Offering Heightened Lipid And Protein Levels with More Than 50% Natural Silkworm Pupae. A Natural Flavor & Taste Koi Love!

With More Than 133 Years Of Koi History, Hikari Should Be Your First Choice!

For centuries, Japan’s finest koi breeders have used silkworm to help their koi rapidly bulk up. While being an excellent addition to a food for its natural lipid and fatty acid levels, silkworm has always been extremely difficult to keep from oxidizing. Fortunately, the formulation experts at Hikari have developed a proprietary process that not only reduces oxidation but also allows an extreme level of silkworm to be included in Hikari Koi Silkworm Selects. Now your koi can experience the traditional Japanese body-building benefits of silkworm in a safe and beneficial treat!

Silkworm Selects offers your koi the highly desirable benefits of silkworm without the negative impacts common with other silkworm-type products. Our advanced production techniques and unique formulation processes have allowed us to utilize the whole silkworm pupae, with all its natural nutritional benefits, while avoiding common oxidization issues. The extreme silkworm content offers a supplemental food, rich in natural lipids and proteins, offering your koi the building blocks they require for superior “traditional” growth and “true koi” conformation. Your koi will truly enjoy this unique treat developed deep in the traditions of Japanese koi breeding experts!

Developed, produced and packaged in our facilities so we can be assured you’ll always get the Hikari quality you expect!
