There are many positive aspects which make edible insects a healthy and sustainable alternative to traditional protein sources such as beef, pork and chicken. Insects possess exceptional nutritional values which makes them highly effective as a source of proteins. Furthermore, their feed-conversion is remarkably higher than traditional livestock, which not only makes them a cost-effective solution but also significantly lowers the impact on the environment. Insects require far less land, water and feed input while simultaneously producing lower greenhouse gas emission in comparison to traditional livestock. Finally, their relative short re-production cycle enables us to breed substantial quantities of high quality insects in a short time span. All these aspects contribute to making insects a healthy, effective and sustainable solution for world hunger and growing environmental pressure. And last but not least, they taste great!
