While there are some adventurous eaters who will intentionally try insects as a snack, there are many others that cringe at the thought of eating one. But little did you know that insects can be found in many everyday foods we consume. While millions of people have been eating insects for years as it is a great source of protein and there rarely is scarcity of them, many people in the Western world see it as somewhat disgusting.
Recently though the World Health Organisation (WHO) released a study that advocates the consumption of insects as it is nutritious and cheap to produce compared to where many people receive their protein, through beef. Cows use up a large amount of resources and has an exceptionally harsh impact on the environment. Insects are a great alternative protein source.
