Abstract Determination of the proximate, nutritionally valuable minerals and anti-nutrient compositions in larvae of Cirina forda (W) showed that they contained high levels of protein, (55.50\%+/-1.20\%) with ash, moisture, fat, and carbohydrate levels being (10.26\%+/-0.01\%), (10.85\%+/-0.38\%), (4.68\%+/-0.01\%) and (18.70\%+/-0.84\%) respectively. Fibre was not detected. Protein solubility was higher in alkaline media than in acidic media while the isoelectric points were pH 4, 6 and 9 indicating that C. forda may be useful in food formulations involving foods like meat products. Phosphorus had the highest value of (215.54+/-0.21) mg/100 g while manganese had the lowest value of (1.14+/-0.10) mg/100 g. Copper, Co, Pb, Cr and Ni were not available. Water absorption capacity was (300\%+/-0.15\%), oil absorption capacity was (358.44\%+/-0.21\%) and foaming stability was (3\%+/-0.00\%). The results of anti-nutritional analysis revealed that oxalate and phytic acid contents were (4.11+/-0.05) mg/100 g and (1.02+/-0.00) mg/100 g respectively and that these values fell within nutritionally accepted values. Tannin was not detected in C. forda. C. forda, a rich source of animal nutrients, usable in human diets and animal feeds formulations.
