Should We All Be Eating Insects?

Tuck into bugs for instant health boost

Eating bugs and insects is good for our health and good for the environment, according to scientists, and we should all be munching more of them.

Wasps, grasshoppers and the like are rich in protein, but lower in fat that more traditional meat dishes, and have the added benefit of requiring forests to be conserved the more we eat them.

‘Insects are the most valuable, underused and delicious animals in the world,’ David George Gordon, a Seattle-based naturalist and author, told The Telegraph.

‘Maybe we in the West are the weirdos.’

Certainly eating bugs isn’t anything new in certain countries: in Mexico, grasshoppers are a popular choice and giant butterfly larvae are a veritable delicacy in restaurants.

Grasshoppers are also a popular choice in the Philippines, alongside crickets and locusts, while in Papua New Guinea, moths, dragonflies and beetles top certain menus.

Still not tempted? You might change your mind when you hear these facts: grasshoppers have 20 grams of protein but just 6 g of fat per 100g, while crickets are rich in iron, zinc and calcium. If you’re on a diet, fire ants have 13.9g of protein and just 3.5g of fat per 100g.
