Little different to prawns, langoustine tails, or even snails.These are a white bodied insect that Kunyi (Grandmother) fries in a wok with oil and fresh garlic.
After I put some out for the birds, I got curious and looked it up. The adult is actually a black beetle called (*drummroll*) the mealworm beetle.What do the adult flies ( I assume) look like, and how will they keep them on the farm?
I find those foods gross as well. But having them or mealworms mulched into mince and powder wouldn't bother me so much. Sort of a whole how the sausage is made type deal, I know what's in them, I just wouldn't want to see the parts intactLittle different to prawns, langoustine tails, or even snails.
They are very high in protein and in the future we will have little choice other than to eat them (if we are to eat less red meat) however, I think they will be sold more as a mince or a powder so as not to offend sensibilities.
I was going to point out that the quote marks are redundant, as most scampi already is "scampi", i.e. monkfish.Expect Witchetty Grub "scampi" some time soon.
True enough, but there is also a major source of high-quality animal protein likely to cause severe environmental damage in the UK unless something is done with it -- venison. The best thing to do with the excess deer is cull and eat them, but instead we're importing farmed venison from New Zealand. Madness.If the world wants to rely on animal protein in its diet, then we are probably going to have to get to like insects in all their [in]finite varieties.
