Edible insects: how communication overcomes the yuk-factor - Entomofago

Can you sum up its content and goals? In recent years researchers have been showing increasing interest regarding the hypohetical introduction of edible insects in the western diet. First of all the individual benefits linked to the excellent nutritional profile of the main species of edible insects are emphasized. Moreover there are also important “social” benefits, such as the reduction of gas emissions, water conservation, reuse of agricultural waste and food safety.

What are the implicit associations in the field of eating behaviour? Scientists think cockroach milk could be the superfood of the future. An international team of scientists has just sequenced a protein crystal located in the midgut of cockroaches.

Scientists think cockroach milk could be the superfood of the future

The reason? It’s more than four times as nutritious as cow’s milk and, the researchers think it could be the key to feeding our growing population in the future. Although most cockroaches don’t actually produce milk, Diploptera punctate, which is the only known cockroach to give birth to live young, has been shown to pump out a type of ‘milk’ containing protein crystals to feed its babies.

The fact that an insect produces milk is pretty fascinating – but what fascinated researchers is the fact that a single one of these protein crystals contains more than three times the amount of energy found in an equivalent amount of buffalo milk (which is also higher in calories then dairy milk). "The crystals are like a complete food - they have proteins, fats and sugars. Not only is the milk a dense source of calories and nutrients, it’s also time released.

There are almost 1,900 edible species of insects worldwide, which are voluntarily consumed by humans because of their taste and nutritious qualities, the report claims. However, western consumers have struggled to get past the ‘ick factor’ and few European entomophagists enjoy eating insects as a more environmentally friendly alternative to meat, it suggested. Good taste and sampling Good taste and sampling could help Europeans overcome their entomophobia suggests Gabi Lewis, who sells protein bars made from cricket flour.

“The biggest key to getting past the preconceived notions about eating insects is to get people to try the bars and learn that they taste delicious,” she remarked. Europe's first insect food safety guide. Hazards per species of insect, including cultivation conditions and additional processing, were outlined in the guide produced by the Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain (FASFC) in Belgium. “Worldwide, there are about 2,000 edible insect species known and, in certain regions, insects have already been eaten for ages by humans,” the FASFC said. “Nevertheless, there is little scientific literature available on the food safety of insects. " Regulated sector The guidelines produced by the FASFC were the first step in the possible development of a regulated sector. But, to guarantee the food safety of entomophagy on a large scale in Europe, more research into the microbial and chemical safety of insects for human consumption was needed, it added.
