Edible insects taste better than chips!”
But Party Bugs roasted and seasoned crickets and mealworms are the tastiest. I could eat them all day, every day.
The healthier and tastier snacks!
There are many reasons to eat bugs.
Did you know that edible grasshoppers have more antioxidants than oranges!
(Di Mattia et al., 2019)
Crickets and other edible insects are a superfood! In roasted insects, 60-70% of the net dry weight is cricket protein. They also contain a lot of healthy fats and micronutrients like iron, magnesium, and zinc.
Edible insects are a delicacy with a great history
Entomophagy, which describes eating insects by humans, has long traditions and has always been around. Ancient Romans and Greeks luxuriated in with edible insects. Aristotle feasted on the song cicadas, and Pliny the Elder was crazy about the beetle larvae. Cockchafers were considered a delicacy in France, Germany, Italy, Moldova, and Wallachia long until the 20th century. French people still crunch edible grasshoppers between wine glasses.
Every year we all eat at least half a kilo of insects hidden inside and as a part of our normal food.
Insect consumption is common in 80% of the world, and 2 billion people feast on edible insects. Their insect food recipes are waiting for you! It is indeed a paradox that the other sides of the ancient culture are valued in Western countries. Still, the habit of luxuriating with the edible bugs has not received the attention it deserves.
Not that expensive protein
The protein content in dried insects and insect flours is 60 – 70%, 3–4 times more than the protein content in fresh meat or ready-to-cook vegetarian meat substitutes. One can easily calculate and conclude that a protein kilo’s cost is about the same in good quality beef, vegetarian meat substitutes, and dry insect products.
Food for Future
Insects can be grown sustainably, very efficiently, and have a much higher food conversion rate than conventional livestock. Production hygiene is very high as the production becomes increasingly automatized. The circular economy principles can be followed as insects can be fed with the leftover vegetarian feed from food production.
