Edible insects are packed with natural, healthy nutrients such as protein, vitamins, minerals, iron and healthy omega fatty acids. Compared to other food types, insects have an extreme high concentration of these nutrients, which makes them a highly efficient food source. Insects are furthermore very suitable to be processed into ingredients for various food applications.
The current food industry is having a significant negative impact on our environment. With the growing world population and rising demand for nutritional food, it is critical we start searching for a sustainable solution in order to feed the world without consuming the earth. Insects are the solution as they require little feed, land and water and have a limited impact on the environment.
