Study: More People Will Eat Bugs if They’re Up-Marketed as Luxury Item
Also more people will eat bugs if they are ground into a fine powder (high in protein!) and no bug images are used on any of the packaging.
Right now I am searching on the internet where I can purchase insects to eat. There is high potential for insects as a protein alternative to the unsustainable meat industry; I am considering and probably will soon begin eating insects. It would be a plus if they were ground into a fine powder but I would not mind consuming them whole. I will report on how this goes and I am interesting to at least try it out. My conception of this currently is that I will feel like one of our ancestors...a varied diet of nuts and seeds (I eat a lot of these), some meat, many fruits and vegetables, and now a healthy load of insects.
have you checked out: http://www.crunchycr...edible-insects/
once you have a sense of what and how to eat with insects, depending on your region of the world you could likely farm your own supply. Crickets, mealworms, and black soldier fly larva/pupa are all farmable. Though crickets getting out and infesting the building, and black soldier flies complicated mating needs make meal worms the best choice.
