The use of insects as food is referred to as entomophagy. Human from prehistoric times to present day have eaten the larvae, eggs, pupae, and adult insects. Most insects are 100% edible as compared with 40% of a cow. Just to think eating bugs is more environmentally friendly than livestock. Many insects are high in zinc, iron, calcium and protein. Some of the most eaten insects globally include crickets, grasshoppers and locusts. They're considered delicious to eat and there are many reasons to farm insects for food. It is believed that eating insects could help enhance nutrition and reduce pollution. Insects produce a fraction of greenhouse gases such as methane and ammonia as compared to livestock. Some species of insects are considered aphrodisiacs. Each year the population of the world increases by millions, and insects are viewed as another food source. It has been estimated that there are over 1900 species of insects that are edible. Those that are in the ‘bug business' are seeking ways to appeal to the interest of consumers with powdered insects in pasta, protein shakes and bread. Michelle Gant of Fox News, reflects on the subject of eating crickets and the health benefits received:
“While many people are understandably squeamish about the idea of eating insects, the health benefits might make it worthwhile.
According to a new clinical trial from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, consuming crickets can have a positive impact on your gut health and reduce inflammation in the body.
