Mealworm Recipes & Nutrition

Mealworm Recipes & Nutrition | Entomophagy: Edible Insects and the Future of Food | Scoop.it
Mealworms are nutritious insects that are high in protein and fat. They are a good food for birds, reptiles, small animals, and even people. Although eating insects may sound strange, for most of the world eating insects is quite common. Some are even considered a delicacy. Mealworms can be eaten raw and alive, they can also be pan-fried, but dry-roasting is often the tastiest and least recognizable way to eat them.

ON A recent Tuesday night, 30 people gathered at the dimly lit Black Ant restaurant in lower Manhattan for a bug banquet.The crowd passed a fuzzy blue caterpillar around the room while Louis Sorkin, an entomologist at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, introduced them to various types of insects and the different ways they could be eaten. Gabi Lewis, co-founder of Exo, a line of protein bars made with cricket flour, shared how he and fellow Brown University student Greg Sewitz got into the business of edible insects.

15 Foods To Add To Your Diet In 2015

15 Foods To Add To Your Diet In 2015 | Entomophagy: Edible Insects and the Future of Food | Scoop.it

3. Crickets:
In the next year, Americans will most likely continue to debate the health impact of red meat, and whether or not it harms us or helps us. Above and beyond health however, there's something else we should be looking at as well -- the environmental impact of our meat heavy diet. Scientists predict that as the population increases, our demand on meat as food will as well, leading to increased livestock methane emissions and further increases in climate change and pollution. So meat eaters, where oh where will you get protein that makes you feel good about your health and the earth? It's time to say hello to the cricket.

Crickets (as well as mealworms, locusts, and grasshoppers) can provide the high quality protein that so many meat lovers are seeking without the carbon footprint according to several new studies. Americans in general need to adapt to a healthier diet for many reasons, but perhaps now more then ever, we need to think about the environment as well.

According to a new survey, most individuals are ready to do that. Therefore, you might be seeing a little less cow and a lot more insect in 2015. By the way, if you want to avoid meat all together (a cricket is, still an animal product), plants have a minimal impact on the environment and can provide plenty of fabulous protein as well!

« La 3D Food Printing est une opportunité de valoriser de nouveaux ingrédients, comme les insectes et les algues, qui ne sont pas très appétissants mais qui présentent un intérêt nutritionnel évident en raison de leur apports protéiniques importants et de leur production abondante. Ils pourront être imprimés en 3D avec de nouvelles formes et textures qui ressembleront aux produits que nous connaissons déjà. »

Ana C. Day's insight:

Uptown at Mexican restaurant Toloache, Chef Julian Medina has had grasshoppers on his menu since he opened 8 years ago, but he says now they are more popular than ever. Toloache serves the grasshoppers in a taco with guacamole but these days many food companies are using bug protein instead of the whole creepy crawlers.
