  • Food of the future

    The world's population is increasing and the need for food must follow.
    Maybe growing soy beans to feed to livestock is not the most rational way of producing protein for the masses?

    Here is a new thread to explore the possibilities of utilizing other sources to supply the hungry masses, starting with a possible high protein source that has not been exploited fully; insects.

    Insects are commonly eaten in some parts of the world, but seen as revolting in other parts. Who's to say who is right or wrong?
    I am found of Silkworm pupae, which has a nice nutty taste and can be found as a street food or snacks in many parts of Asia :

    I don't know about this one though:
    If it proves possible to develop this into a viable product, why not??

    This is a very valid question with many implications. I guess you have also seen the documentary on TV, where they discussed the various food sources and what it takes to "produce" for example one kilo of meat.

    Chicken were concluded the best option in terms of energy use per kilo meat.

    But, insects were also one of the new areas where the potential was great.

          They are getting closer:
          In a few years you may be able to choose insects in all their variety from the menu in most restaurants in Europe.

          But somewhere you have to draw the line:
          Bangers with vegies INSIDE, how horrible.
