Identification of novel allergen in edible insect, Gryllus bimaculatus and its cross-reactivity with Macrobrachium spp. allergens. - PubMed - NCBI

Identification of novel allergen in edible insect, Gryllus bimaculatus and its cross-reactivity with Macrobrachium spp. allergens. - PubMed - NCBI | Entomophagy: Edible Insects and the Future of Food | Scoop.it
Abstract
Edible insects have recently been promoted as a source of protein and have a high nutrition value. Identification of allergens and cross-reactivity between Macrobrachium spp. and the field cricket (Gryllus bimaculatus) is necessary for food safety control and to assist in the diagnosis and therapy of allergy symptoms. Denaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) was used to separate proteins. Allergens were determined and identified by IgE-immunoblotting with pooled sera from prawn-allergic patients (n=16) and LC-MS/MS. Arginine kinase (AK) and glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) were determined as the important allergens in muscle of Macrobrachium rosenbergii whereas, hemocyanin (HC) was identified as an allergen in Macrobrachium spp. The allergens in Macrobrachium lanchesteri were identified as AK and HC. In addition, hexamerin1B (HEX1B) was identified as a novel and specific allergen in G. bimaculatus. The important allergen in G. bimaculatus and Macrobrachium spp. is AK and was found to cross-react between both species.

More businesses launching to market edible insects

More businesses launching to market edible insects | Entomophagy: Edible Insects and the Future of Food | Scoop.it
An increasing number of “entopreneurs” are launching businesses to feed a growing appetite for crickets, mealworms and other edible insects.
Ana C. Day's insight:

"“The idea is to offer another type of protein into the food market,” said Martinez, an artist and industrial designer who launched Don Bugito as a street food project in 2011. “The biggest job that we have to do is to try to get more people to try our foods.”

Don Bugito snacks are sold online or at a La Cocina kiosk in San Francisco's Ferry Building, where retail workers recently offered free samples of chocolate-covered crickets and spicy super worms.""

Bug-eating evangelists like to talk about how crickets are caloric magic, claiming the insects can transform table scraps into a crunchy, healthy protein. A new study debunks at least one aspect of what’s being touted everywhere as the food of the future.

Crickets aren't the miracle source of protein

Crickets aren't the miracle source of protein | Entomophagy: Edible Insects and the Future of Food | Scoop.it
Crickets are not all that they're cracked up to be as an alternative, global source of protein in the human diet to supplement or replace livestock consumption, according to newly published research completed at the University of California, Davis.
Ana C. Day's insight:

"The researchers concluded that the potential for "Acheta domesticus to sustainably supplement the global protein supply, beyond what is currently produced via grain-fed chickens, will depend on capturing regionally scalable organic side-streams of relatively high-quality that are not currently being used for livestock production."

Growing appetite for edible insects, eco-friendly protein | Entomophagy: Edible Insects and the Future of Food | Scoop.it
An increasing number of "entopreneurs" are launching businesses to feed a growing appetite for crickets, mealworms and other edible insects.
Ana C. Day's insight:

"“Insects are viewed as what ruins food – a roach in your soup, a fly in your salad. That’s the biggest obstacle – the ick factor,” said Daniella Martin, an author of a book on eating insects and the “Girl Meets Bug” blogger, referring to the feeling of distaste some consumers might feel."

If you meet one of those tourists who complains that there is nothing to do in Phnom Penh, one thing you can suggest is an insect cooking class. The class, taught on the other side of the Monivong Bridge, gives visitors a chance to fry four types of crickets, silk worm larvae, and black water beetles. At the end of class, the cooks are encouraged to sample the dishes: that’s why the course is called “Fear Factor Challenge.” “Some people just go there to take a look, but they say, ‘How can I eat

Several U.S. companies aim to eliminate the yuck factor and get people to eat protein-rich bugs.
Ana C. Day's insight:

"An increasing number of “entopreneurs” are launching businesses to feed a growing appetite for crickets, mealworms and other edible insects. (“Ento” comes from the Greek word for insect.) 

These upstarts are trying to persuade more Americans to eat bugs, which can be produced with less land, food and water than other sources of animal protein."

Rich in protein and requiring relatively few resources to raise, the United Nations says insects should be on our plates.Though bugs make up part of a healthy, diverse diet in many non-Western cultures, Americans and Europeans generally consider eating insects to be disgusting, even ‘primitive.’ But a growing movement by edible insect enthusiasts like Kevin Bachhuber is looking to change this perception.

De même, s’il apparaît évident que nous devons réduire notre consommation de viande pour des raisons à la fois éthiques, écologiques et sanitaires, il faut imaginer que demain, nos assiettes contiendront des aliments que nous jugeons aujourd’hui… étonnants. Nous deviendrons tous végétariens ou nous irons vers des sources de protéines animales différentes, estime Delphine Goffin. Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech (ULg) vient d’ailleurs de mettre sur pied une unité de production d’insectes via sa spin-off Entomofood qui devrait assurer la mise sur le marché de quelque 50 tonnes annuelles de vers de farine et grillons destinés à l’alimentation animale et humaine.
