Insects for food and feed - Welcome to the new Global Stakeholder Directory (version 1.0) on Edible Insects

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."

In a world where certain insects are becoming more common table fare, the United States, well, by and large hasn't touched that food source with a 10-foot pole. That may be changing, especially with data showing how nutritious some insects could be.

ESU Health Promotions professor Dr. Jennifer Thomas discussed the healthiness of crickets during the Morning Show recently. Citing an article published in Men's Health magazine last month, Dr. Jen says powdered crickets compare extremely well to beef, eggs or milk given equal serving sizes.

The other obvious one is insects. The conversion ratios between biomass and food in insects is much better than say, in cows. Beef production is unbelievably inefficient the way that we do it. In the west, we definitely turn our noses up at eating insects. But there are actually quite a few people throughout the world that eat insects today and, for feeding everyone, it is a very obvious solution. It’s not like you have to eat insects raw. You would never know the difference between say, a sausage patty, a veggie sausage patty, and an insect sausage patty. It’s all the same! It’s just the spices. Let the food scientists go crazy on it.

The 5 Foods That Will Rule 2015

The 5 Foods That Will Rule 2015 | Entomophagy: Edible Insects and the Future of Food | Scoop.it
Americans are clamoring for protein more than ever. With the rising popularity of the Paleo diet and the growing contempt for carbohydrates, novel protein products are becoming more readily available. High-protein snacks like Greek yogurt have benefited greatly from Americans' hunger for protein. Insect-based protein products might sound bizarre, but they're poised to explode in popularity for a variety of reasons.

One, they can pack a significant amount of protein and other nutrients into a small package. Two, they're more eco-friendly than traditional protein sources such as cattle. Three, they actually taste pretty good. For example, STACK reviewed two cricket-based protein bars earlier this year, and we were pleasantly surprised at their flavor. Insects (such as crickets) can easily be ground into a flour, which makes their culinary uses virtually endless. Look for more people to be getting a protein punch from bugs in the year ahead.

Blood flies and Chimp Sticks

Meanwhile experimental psychologists Charles Spence and Betina Piqueras-Fiszman round up research on the criteria for gustatory nirvana in The Perfect Meal (Wiley), reviewed here. Spence and Piqueras-Fiszman explore variables such as lighting, plate size and the behaviour of wait staff. And speculate broadly about the future of food, including entomophagy or insect-eating. (See also The Insect Cookbook, and an interview with its author Arnold van Huis). Spence and Piqueras-Fiszman reference the Nordic Food Lab as a hotbed of insect-based chow, not least the Chimp Stick — a liquorice root studded with honeyed ants (Formica rufa and Lasius fuliginosus).

They have all, however, been pipped to that post not only by the 2 billion people whose traditional cuisine, notes the UN Food and Agriculture Organization, already encompasses everything from grubs to blood flies, but by Vincent Holt. The Victorian naturalist’s 1885 pamphlet Why Not Eat Insects? suggests a menu featuring Moths on Toast.

Insects galore

The idea of eating bugs still may be pretty outlandish for most Europeans, but edible insects have made some significant moves toward the mainstream in 2014.

In particular, Dutch supermarket chain Jumbo announced plans in November to start selling edible insects in the New Year.

And analysts continue to suggest that making insect-containing products that don’t resemble insects – using insect flour, for example – could bring edible insects to many more Europeans in the future.

Meanwhile in the United States, Exo cricket bars have seen a ‘surprising’ level of demand, according to the company’s co-CEO.
