Several British Companies Are Selling Edible Insects

November 26, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
Though a common practice in countries like India and China, eating insects has been slow to catch on in Western countries. But catching on it is, and insects mass-produced for human consumption, often sold dry roasted or in powder form, are increasingly available in stores, touted as nutritious and beneficial to the environment. Available from U.K. companies like Bugvita, Eat Grub, and EntoKitchen are: whole roasted crickets; herb- and spice-roasted grasshoppers and buffalo worms; and dried mealworms, eaten on their own, salted, sprinkled on salads, or added to soup. They can also replace nuts when making cookies or cakes “as they taste a lot like peanuts.” But there are some potential challenges caused by production and safety concerns: insects are capable of accumulating potential hazards, such as pathogens, allergens and pesticides.
