Ana C. Day's curator insight, January 16, 9:17 AM

"Welcome to the new Global Stakeholder Directory (version 1.0) on Edible Insects!


This directory lets stakeholders present their current and past work on insects as feed and food. It also enables users to identify synergies on cross cutting topics such as: nutrition, livestock management, legislation, labelling and investment while facilitating networking at regional/national levels.

Stakeholders are invited to join the directory and share contact details, social media channels, and website links which link directly to your publications.

If you would like to be part of this dynamic directory please write to Christopher.Muenke@fao.org. You will then be contacted by FAO in due time with further instructions on how to proceed. Users can choose what information is published online OR if you would like to keep your information private, it will be made available only to the FAO Edible Insect Programme.

The Edible insect programme would like to acknowledge the work done by Ms. Rena Chen, who developed the “International Entomophagist Contact Directory” and whose data was incorporated in this directory. We also acknowledge the work by Wageningen University in incorporating their previous database."

Thanks for visiting our site!

BenSBugS is a start up in Belgium, developing foods containing insects. We believe that insects are a highly nutritious food component. Besides an excellent alternative source of protein for meat, fish and vegetarian products, insects are also rich in minerals, vitamins and poly unsaturated fats.

In the fall of 2014, our first product – the BenSBugS Burger - will become available in a few stores in Belgium.  Are you interested in our BenSBugS Burger? Please register here. We will gladly keep you informed.

Ana C. Day's curator insight, August 11, 2013 9:56 AM

"What if you could feast on a Paleo-approved, environmentally friendly, ethically raised, and extremely nutritious animal protein you’d never tried before? Great, right?

 

What if that animal protein came from something you never thought of as food? Something you’ve been taught to think of as “gross” and “icky”?

What if it was a cricket?

 

Ever since the UN’s report on world hunger praised insects as a sustainable and practical solution to feeding Earth’s growing population, emtomophagy (the practice of eating insects) has been in the news. Edible insects got a mention in one previous What’s Happening post, but this week, crickets are taking the Paleo world by storm, with new posts at both Mark’s Daily Apple and theWhole30 blog about the nutritional and environmental advantages of these tasty little critters. The protein of the future is here, and it says chirp!"
