The event

Insects as food? While many consumers cannot imagine this, insects have recently been approved as a novel food and are gaining ground. On the one hand, insects provide a sustainable alternative for animal products elsewhere. On the other hand, nutritionally they are a good alternative to conventional protein sources. Nevertheless, the acceptance of insects is low and there are challenges in breeding them in large quantities. Do insects have long-term potential to enter our diet? What are the arguments for and against insects as an ingredient for the food production? Be up to date.
