Bug food: EU Gives Green Light for Use of Two Insect Species in Human Food

According to Breitbart, processed forms of crickets and mealworms have been, or soon will be, approved for human consumption in the EU. So far, at least, the EU is saying that it is up to the consumer to decide whether or not to eat products containing bugs, don’t be surprised if it is sneaked into foods.

Global elites have been keen to move western populations away from meat eating over the last number of years, with the topic once again receiving attention at the World Economic Forum’s annual conference at Davos earlier this month.

“If a billion people stop eating meat, I tell you, it has a big impact,” Jim Hagemann Snabe, the chairman of German manufacturer Siemens, remarked during a panel on climate change at the conference.

“I predict we will have proteins not coming from meat in the future, they will probably taste even better,” he continued. “They will be zero carbon and much healthier than the kind of food we eat today, that is the mission we need to get on.”

Of course, they aren’t serving meat alternatives or bug meals at their own conferences and meetings. As an example, meals containing beef, chicken and salmon were all served at the U.N.’s climate conference in Egypt last year, although the U.N. has been pushing meat alternatives for several years now.

As reported by Breitbart last October, Dutch school children have been fed mealworms as a form of protein. By starting young, they hope to “unprejudice” children about eating insects.

        Since peanut butter has been eliminated from school menus due to peanut allergies, perhaps the same thing will happen to cricket-laden items. Those who are allergic to shellfish can also be allergic to crickets.

          So now the manufacturers will be required to warn on the labels that crickets (also locusts) are included in the mixture, or processed in the same plant as the food in the container, since people allergic to shellfish need to know!

          PS, how does the intentional inclusion of insects affect the FDA’s job of monitoring for insect parts?!?!?!

            Interesting question, Czarina. There is a “high protein” snack food currently for sale that contains cricket powder. There were no allergy warnings on the bag.

            It would seem that any insect parts that are not powdered would be subject to the insect parts guidelines. If powdered, free pass.

    The good news is the intestinal parasites they were vectoring got desiccated and ground up too. And are likely no longer a threat to you. BTW, locusts are the only insects that are Halal and Kosher.

    Double entendre… hit the wrong key after. Good word play.
