In 17 Years, You will be eating insects!
You might turn your nose up at the idea but scientists are half way there!
Around 70 million people are added to the world’s population every year and almost 1 billion are chronically hungry … In order to reduce food waste and make food production more efficient, 1900 insects species are being analysed by the UN (FAO)…
Insects are a good source of proteins, fiber, vitamins and minerals! You can already find roasted grasshoppers with garlic and chili in Mexico! 100g are loaded with Proteins (20.6g), Calcium (35.2g) and Iron (5g)… Tarantulas (hairy spiders) are being cooked up in Cambodia and Venezuela and taste like shrimps and crab…
The European Commission is offering 4.32$million to the group that comes up with the best idea for developing insects as a popular food! Caramelized crickets anyone ?
