Insects for food and feed - Welcome to the new Global Stakeholder Directory (version 1.0) on Edible Insects | Entomophagy: Edible Insects and the Future of Food | Scoop.it
Ana C. Day's insight:

"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."

Are edible bugs the next big trend? Are insects the next frontier in fine dining? / Sara Morrow

NEW YORK – It’s a Friday night in Manhattan’s East Village, and six-month-old contemporary Mexican restaurant The Black Ant is buzzing. There’s an hour wait for a table, and in the dim dining room, groups sample inventive fare such as cod cheek tacos, pig’s feet with blood clams and, even more adventurously, grasshoppers.

What if we told you the best way to get more muscle-building protein into your diet wasn’t to whip up more omelets or drink more shakes — but to eat bugs?

8 weird things you can eat in Mexico that are actually really good

8 weird things you can eat in Mexico that are actually really good | Entomophagy: Edible Insects and the Future of Food | Scoop.it
1. Grasshoppers

When I first arrived in Oaxaca, the thought of eating grasshoppers made me feel a little queasy. However, now I buy a little bag of them on every trip to the market. I sprinkle them on guacamole, on top of a crispy tostada, or just eat them like chips straight from the bag. They make for a delicious, chilli-infused, salty snack and they are full of protein to boot.
