In preparing their report, EFSA researchers drew data from peer reviewed scientific studies from France, the Netherlands and Belgium to create a risk profile identifying the potential biological, chemical and environmental hazards associated with farmed insects.

The report also considered the potential hazards if the insects are fed on kitchen waste and animal manure. First gene-edited meal served up from CRISPR cabbage.
