    Default UN: Eat more insects; good for you, good for world


    Photo: AP This undated photo provided by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) shows a plate with insects during an insect cuisine competition at an unknown location in Laos. The U.N. has new weapons to fight hunger, boost nutrition and reduce pollution, and they might be crawling or flying near you right now: edible insects. The Food and Agriculture Organization on Monday, May 13, 2013, hailed the likes of grasshoppers, ants and other members of the insect world as an underutilized food for people, livestock and pets. A 200-page report, released at a news conference at the U.N. agency's Rome headquarters, says 2 billion people worldwide already supplement their diets with insects, which are high in protein and minerals, and have environmental benefits.


    ROME (AP) — The latest weapon in the U.N.'s fight against hunger, global warming and pollution might be flying by you right now.


    Edible insects are being promoted as a low-fat, high-protein food for people, pets and livestock. According to the U.N., they come with appetizing side benefits: Reducing greenhouse gas emissions and livestock pollution, creating jobs in developing countries and feeding the millions of hungry people in the world.

    Some edible insect information in bite-sized form: WHO EATS INSECTS NOW? Two billion people do, largely in Asia, Africa and Latin America, the Rome-based U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization said Monday as it issued a report exploring edible insect potential.

    Some insects may already be in your food (and this is no fly-in-my-soup joke). Demand for natural food coloring as opposed to artificial dyes is increasing, the agency's experts say. A red coloring produced from the cochineal, a scaled insect often exported from Peru, already puts the hue in a trendy Italian aperitif and an internationally popular brand of strawberry yogurt. Many pharmaceutical companies also use colorings from insects in their pills.

    PACKED WITH PROTEIN, FULL OF FIBER Scientists who have studied the nutritional value of edible insects have found that red ants, small grasshoppers and some water beetles pack (gram-per-gram or ounce-per-ounce) enough protein to rank with lean ground beef while having less fat per gram.

    Bored with bran as a source of fiber in your diet? Edible insects can oblige, and they also contain useful minerals such as iron, magnesium, phosphorous, selenium and zinc. WHICH TO CHOOSE? Beetles and caterpillars are the most common meals among the more than 1,900 edible insect species that people eat. Other popular insect foods are bees, wasps, ants, grasshoppers, locusts and crickets. Less popular are termites and flies, according to U.N. data.

    ECO-FRIENDLY Insects on average can convert 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds) of feed into 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) of edible meat. In comparison, cattle require 8 kilograms (17.6 pounds) of feed to produce a kilogram of meat. Most insects raised for food are likely to produce fewer environmentally harmful greenhouse gases than livestock, the U.N. agency says.

    DON'T SWAT THE INCOME Edible insects are a money-maker. In Africa, four big water bottles filled with grasshoppers can fetch a gatherer 15 euros ($20). Some caterpillars in southern Africa and weaver ant eggs in Southeast Asia are considered delicacies and command high prices.

    Insect-farms tend to be small, serving niche markets like fish bait businesses. But since insects thrive across a wide range of locations — from deserts to mountains — and are highly adaptable, experts see big potential for the insect farming industry, especially those farming insects for animal feed. Most edible insects are now gathered in forests.

    LET A BUG DO YOUR RECYLING A 3 million euro ($4 million) European Union-funded research project is studying the common housefly to see if a lot of flies can help recycle animal waste by essentially eating it while helping to produce feed for animals such as chickens. Right now farmers can only use so much manure as fertilizer and many often pay handsome sums for someone to cart away animal waste and burn it.

    A South African fly factory that rears the insects en masse to transform blood, guts, manure and discarded food into animal feed has won a $100,000 U.N.-backed innovation prize.

    Appetite…….…..Really? Half of the worlds population doesn’t even know what does that even mean ok. They just want something which is consumable at best but the cruelty is none of them have the fate of getting those either. In a overpopulated world like this, talking about luster is a sign of hypocrisy where a single child is dying in every five seconds because of hunger and malnutrition. U know Not every country in the world is like usa who usually dump thousand tons of food in the sea or blessed with such fertility and sweet water like ours where a seed can grow up almost instantly without any further nourishment.


    If u read the un report carefully u will see they have emphasized on nutrition of such insects. But the most important thing is the reproduction capability of these insects which is 1000 times better than any normal food source and their versatile acclimatization capability is beyond any competition. Yes convincing people to eat such insect will be quite tough of course but hunger or starvation knows know boundary u know, just remember the trapped people of savar tragedy where many of them started to drink their own blood to fulfill their thirst. Human beings are slave of their own habit and they can do almost anything to survive cuz that’s the ultimate goal of nature. And this insect eating program is mainly planned to run in such region where food is almost considered as gold dust and un is just trying to familiarize these wretched people with a new kind of food habit to lessen the unfortunate death of these poor malnutritioned, starving, people as much as possible. I don’t see any reason why these sorts of program shouldn’t be appreciated.
