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."

Why you can, should, and probably will eat bugs

Why you can, should, and probably will eat bugs | Entomophagy: Edible Insects and the Future of Food | Scoop.it

This year seems to be the year of the insect farming start-up. In the coming months, your options for dining on creepy crawlers are set to explode.Crickets, in particular, are featured in a whole host of new products --  they're easy to raise en masse, and can be ground down into an innocuous "flour" (really, it's more like protein powder that doubles as leavening). There are cricket chips and protein bars to chew on, not to mention whole bugs, kept crispy and covered in tasty seasoning.

The first time Shami Radia tried eating insects was in March 2009 in Malawi, where he was working for the charity WaterAid. ‘It was the beginning of the rainy season and all of a sudden the kids got really excited and ran outside,’ he says. ‘That evening they brought in a plate of flying ants, all fried up. I tried them with a bit of home brew and they were actually quite nice.’
