Abstract or Summary
  • Global human population are growing at a very high rate. By the year 2050, food demand is expected to increase by 70%. World wide 805 million people are malnourished. Entomophagy has the potential to provide a solution to impending hunger problems while taking pressure off of our current cropping systems. Many people groups have been eating insects around the world for centuries to supplement their daily nutrition needs. There is a negative stigma in developed countries towards the consumption of insect. Insects are full of protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. The use of insects over other protein sources could decrease damage to ecosystems while providing a more sustainable and nutritious food source.
