Don’t bug out, but…

23 July 2013

Mexico has some 300 to 550 species of edible insects, more than any country in the world, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), which issued a 200-page report this year in praise of entomophagy – insect-eating – as a promising source of sustainable protein. “The case needs to be made to consumers that eating insects is not only good for their health, it is good for the planet,” the FAO report read. The tiny comestibles are very high in protein, it noted, especially compared to meats such as beef and pork.
