Hamburgers and hot dogs made out of insects

Traditional meat products are being replaced by delicacies made out of insects. And, if in Asia and Africa it is considered quite normal, marketers have to work hard to change centuries-old food prejudices of the Europeans. The task of turning grasshoppers, ants and caterpillars into delicious dishes was given to humankind’s best minds by... UN officials. They argue that insect consumption is the key to solving hunger in the world. Insects are rich in proteins and minerals, breed very fast and contain less fat than regular meat. Moreover, it is much easier to keep this ‘livestock’, it does not damage the environment in the way cattle does. A personal desktop farm for the cultivation of edible larvae may well eliminate the need to go to the butchers’.
