HEALTHY

Above all, insects are packed with nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Many insects are rich in protein and good fats, Vitamins B1, B2 and B12, high in calcium, iron, zinc, and are also a good source for fiber.

It is known that animal-sourced dietary protein is superior to other sources such as plants, as it contains all 9 essential amino acids.

 

Insects are biologically more separated from humans than vertebrate livestock, so the risk of an insect viral pathogen or parasite jumping to humans is extremely low.

SUSTANTABILITY

By 2050 the estimated global population will reach 9 billion as land available for agriculture has deminished in an unsustainable fashion. 

For every person, there are more than 200 million insects on earth, which would be enough to end hunger.

Unlike other forms of protein, Insects need only a small percentage of resources such as land and water to be produced.

Livestock produces more greenhouse gases than all the world’s vehicles combined.

It is estimated that by 2025, two-thirds of the world´s population will probably suffer due to water shortage and 1.8 billion people will live in countries or regions with absolute water scarcity.

 

– When farmed, insects consume minimal amounts of water compared to the production of other food products and finished goods.
