Why eat insects? What are the nutritional benefits?
First of all because they have a great taste, burst and amaze you!
But above all, because they are very nutritious, dietetic, rich in protein, vitamins, calcium, fiber, iron, zinc and omega-3.
A food of the future, which you can try today.
For example, the crickets provide more than twice the protein, five times as much magnesium and three times as much iron as beef.
Already in 2013, the FAO (United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization) has published a key document on the contribution of insects to food safety, the economy and the environment.
What are the benefits to the environment and the sustainability of food production?
On average, insects are able to convert 2 kg of food into 1 kg of body mass instead of cattle, serving 8 kg of food to increase 1 kg of body mass.
Their breeding significantly reduces the production of greenhouse gases: for example, crickets produce 80 times less cattle emissions.
Also the amount of water and soil required is drastically reduced.
The global population is steadily growing, food and environmental resources are not enough to sustain this growth rate.
Insects are not only a formidable alternative source of protein available to developing countries, but also an instrument for changing the food production model to the developed ones, making it sustainable and environmentally friendly.
Eating insects can cause allergic reactions or other health problems?
There are no known cases of the transmission of diseases or parasitosis to humans from the intake of insects (provided that the insects are manipulated under the same hygienic conditions as any other food).
However, allergy comparable to allergy to crustaceans, which are also invertebrates, may occur.
