Why Eat Insects?

For starters, they're nutritious!

Eating insects, also called entomophagy, is more common than you may think. Insects have served as a food source for people for tens of thousands of years. Although less popular in North america, insects remain a popular food in many developing regions of Central and South America, Africa, and Asia. It is estimated that there are 1,417 species of insects and arachnids that are eaten by humans on a regular basis.

People across the globe eat insects because they are very nutritious and readily available. Insects can be a good source of not only protein, but also vitamins, minerals, and fats. For example, crickets are high in calcium, and termites are rich in iron. One hundred grams of giant silkworm moth larvae provide 100 percent of the daily requirements for copper, zinc, iron, thiamin, and riboflavin.

Allergy Warning: Shellfish & Nuts
People who are allergic to shellfish may also be allergic to insects. All food samples may contain nuts.
