    Default Eating insects; way of the Future?

    IDK.

    I've yet to try it and heard it's being recommended to be adopted in my part of the world.
    I am aware that certain E numbers can have gross origins but, eating insects.. They say it's done in other cultures and that we should stop being so squeamish.

    They say it's an excellent protein.

    I've found this.

    It delivers more protein than most meat and many cultures already have insects in their diet and are much cheaper to get. Plus less carbon emissions.

    Only thing though: It's disgusting

    Although you can mash it up and mix it with other things and add sauces to it or just make it into pills.

    Yeah, but, E numbers aside making for red Skittles and whatnot, you can make it into pills, but we can't live off of food supplement alone; I think, worms prepared into a patty is gross. I hear some of these can taste like walnut?.. IDK. 'Tis kinda gross.

    Gross personally. I don't think I'd bother with most.

    Would I ever try...? Maybe... Like ants. I know if you mix them into a certain pie they're apparently real good though.

    I'm generally grossed by insects, but still if I was in the area where people eat them , I would like to give it a try.

    I think that we should start eating insects. They grow really fast, dont require large amounts of food and offer protein. It is no more gross than eating chicken or pork.

    I am open to a lot of things, often to my own own detriment, but I draw the line at any insect larger than an ant.

    Crickets are a good source of protein - much more environmentally friendly to farm than red meat or dairy, and the amino acid profile is better than plant sources of protein e.g. soy, pea, rice etc.

    It's been around for quite a while, fitness community's been experimenting with it since 2014ish - people have even used it for baking. Is Cricket Flour the New Protein Powder? - The Daily Beast

    I haven't tried it because it's so fucking expensive compared to other sources of protein. Here are some commercially available cricket protein bars if anyone wants to try them: Products - Exo

    We'll sure eat it in the future but I don't know... it's kind of disgusting for me . I think it's because we aren't accostumed to it but as Brain in a Jar says with enough time will be as eating meat.
