Global Food Shortages Soon You Will Be Eating Bugs!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


If you’re like most Americans, the idea of eating bugs (entomology) is not only taboo but also downright disgusting; but with 80 percent of the world’s population eating insects it’s time we started asking the question, are we the weird ones?

The sushi of the future is insects. By 2050, 9 billion people will inhabit the planet and meat will be like caviar; expensive and hard to get. With a protein gap on the horizon, insects are being touted as a realistic and sustainable food choice. It’s been on the menu around the world for centuries but Westerners have never warmed to the thought of a creepy-crawly on the tongue. Sure, we’re willing to chomp on lobsters and shrimp (the insects of the ocean) but ask someone if they’d eat a bug and most will make the ick face. So what’s the secret to getting Westerners to eat insects? Like sushi, it’ll be good branding and good design.

“Things like crickets and grasshoppers will be ground down and used as an ingredient in things like burgers.”

The Dutch government is putting serious money into getting insects into mainstream diets. It recently invested one million euros (£783,000) into research and to prepare legislation governing insect farms.

A large chunk of the world’s population already eat insects as a regular part of their diet. Caterpillars and locusts are popular in Africa, wasps are a delicacy in Japan, crickets are eaten in Thailand.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-18813075
