Bugs have benefits
Insects are a delectable and sustainable alternative to eating steak. It takes around 9 kilos of grain to produce 1 kilo of beef, but only 1.2 kilos to produce 1 kilo of locusts. Locusts taste remarkably nutty and have an equivalent protein content to their meaty conterparts, with a lower amount of saturated fat! Entomophagy is the field behind eating insects, which already occurs in many regions of the world. In Mexico over 1200 species of insect are eaten, with equivalent figures in SE Asia. Hopefully we can introduce insects to the plates of western families and help transform the planet, one bug at a time.
