“WOW! This is better than chips!”
The healthier and tastier snacks!
Did you know that edible grasshoppers have more antioxidants than oranges!
(Di Mattia et. al., 2019)
Crickets and other edible insects are superfood! In roasted insects, 60-70% of the net dry weight is protein. They also contain a lot of healthy fats as well as micronutrients like iron, magnesium, and zinc.
A delicacy with a great history
Entomophagy, which describes the practice of eating insects by humans, has long traditions and has always been around. Ancient Romans and Creeks luxuriated in with edible insects. Aristotle feasted on the song cicadas and Pliny the Elder was crazy about the beetle larvae. Cockchafers were considered as a delicacy in France, Germany, Italy, Moldova, and Valakia long until the 20th century. French still crunch edible grasshoppers between wine glasses.
We all eat at least half a kilo of insects every year 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 in Western countries all other sides are valued by the ancient culture, but the eating of the edible bugs has been almost completely forgotten.
Not that expensive protein
The protein content in dried insects and insect flours is 60 – 70% which is 3–4 times more than the protein content in fresh meat or ready-to-cook vegetarian meat substitutes. One can easily calculate and come to the result that the cost of a protein kilo 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 they have a much higher food conversion rate than conventional livestock. Production hygiene is very high as the production becomes increasingly automatized. The principles of the circular economy can be followed as insects can be fed with the leftover vegetarian feed from food production.
