“Use of insects as a sustainable protein rich feed ingredient in pig and poultry feed is technically feasible. Insects can be reared on low-grade bio-waste and can turn low-grade bio-waste into high quality proteins. Insects therefore can be a promising interesting link in the animal feed chain to fulfil the globally increased demand for protein.” from: Insects as a sustainable feed ingredient in pig and poultry diets – a feasibility study”, Livestock Research, Wageningen University, October 2012.

David Gracer is an entomophagy (bug eating) expert with an interesting case for making wider use of bugs… He’s eating them to save the planet.

The video above is an episode of the Perennial Plate, an online documentary series dedicated to adventurous eating.
