"It is silkworms that make Koi grow big and finish beautifully!" according to all the top Koi breeders in Japan. Why are silkworms good? Because of the composition of protein in silkworm (amino acid) is the nearest to protein composition of Koi, which Koi can naturally absorb (protein of a silkworm) without any troubles. Fine quality silkworms are "the best natural food" for Koi. This protein contains a lot of amino acids that is absolutely indispensable for living creatures such as alanine, glycine and tyrosine. The glycine it contains is 8 times more then milk, and 6 times that of an egg. These amino acids strengthen liver function, improve detoxification and decrease cholesterol in blood. When liver function deteriorates, skin of Koi gets yellow. In other words, strengthening a liver function will maintain snow-white skin.
