Over 70% of consumers would eat fish, chicken or pork from animals fed on a diet containing insect protein, earlier studies revealed. The EU funded project PROteINSECT is now asking EU consumers again if they are accepting animal products that ate insect protein.
It's time to end the myth once and for all. The farms in children's books are history. In this episode we investigate the environmental effects of "mega farms"....
Ana C. Day's insight:
"Another project funded by the European Union is looking at insects as a more sustainable source of protein for animal nutrition. Before being trialled in Europe, the programme needs to usher in a change in the law as well as overcoming consumer resistance to eating livestock fed on a bug-based diet."
Arnold van Huis is Professor of Tropical Entomology at Wageningen University in The Netherlands. He is an advocate of entomophagy - or the human consumption of insects as food. There are 2,000 different types of insects that humans could consume for meat and protein, instead of beef, pork, chicken or other meats. In this interview Professor van Huis explains why farming and consuming insects might be better for humans and our planet than other animals.
Taipei, March 24 (CNA) A Kaohsiung-based company that raises maggots as a source of animal protein was selected by the Ministry of Education (MOE) Tuesday as a distinguished start-up by university graduates and awarded a government subsidy. Green Ark Biotech Co. (綠色方舟生技有限公司), established by National Kaohsiung University of Applied Sciences graduates Huang Yen-ping (黃彥評) and Yang Yung-hsin (楊詠馨) in late 2014, found its business path from fly larvae, or maggots.
BENISON MEDIA publisher of Think Grain Think Feed trade magazine enters the market as a young and innovative company which aims to strengthen the connecting link between knowledge providers and industry.
Poux, punaises, mouches, coléoptères, voilà ce que les animaux qui finissent dans nos assiettes pourraient être amenés à manger bientôt. C'est du moins ce que quelques start-ups, attirées par ce lucratif 'business des cafards', espèrent.
This survey is being managed by an EC funded project as part of the consumer perception work on animal feed. By taking part you are furthering the understanding of consumer perception about the content (current and potential) of animal feed. Completing the survey should take you less than 10 minutes.
There are no right or wrong answers so all we ask is that you complete the survey honestly and then send on to your friends and family so they can do the same. The more people take part the better

Ana C. Day's insight:
"Shawn Jadrnicek, farm manager for the Clemson University Student Organic Farm, has helped develop a project that is using food waste from the university cafeterias to attract a species of fly that is rapidly gaining fame among fans of sustainability."
Abstract The decrease in the availability and the increase in the prices of fishmeal and fish oil have prompted the search for sustainable alternatives for aquaculture feeds. Insects, which are part of the natural diet of fish, leave a small ecological footprint and have a limited need for arable land, may represent a good candidate. Over the last decade, studies of the replacement of fishmeal with insects in the diet of fish have emerged and the promising results have encouraged further research. The present review displays these results in tables and emphasizes the achievable dietary inclusion levels. It discusses the potential of locusts, grasshoppers, termites, yellow mealworms, Asiatic rhinoceros beetles, superworms, domesticated silkworms, common houseflies, common mosquitoes and black soldier flies for use as fishmeal and/or fish oil replacement in the fish diet. The review succinctly compares the composition of the insects with the requirements of the fish (proteins and amino acids, lipids and fatty acids, vitamins and minerals). This review also discusses the potential hurdles of using insects in fish feeds (toxicity of insects through bioaccumulation, deficiencies in amino acids or fatty acids, chitin content, palatability, digestibility), and the available ways of avoiding these drawbacks (control of the dietary substrate of insects in mass rearing units, manipulation of the diet of insects, mixture of dietary proteins, use of aquatic insects, processing of insect meal). Finally, it suggests paths worthy of future research on these new fishmeal alternatives.
