Article-Review: Opportunities and Hurdles of Edible Insects for Food and Feed

Yunmei Wang

Abstract


Have you ever suggested an insect cuisine to a friend? One can picture the face of apprehension and disgust he or she would give you. Many people cannot see themselves ordering a "buggy' burger, but as the years come and go, it seems more and more likely that these creepy crawlies might save the planet (Payne, 2018). Reading this article; Opportunities and Hurdles of Edible Insects for Food and Feed written by D. Dobermann, J. A. Swift and L. M. Field (2017) and published in the Nutrition Bulletin by John Wiley & Sons Ltd. on behalf of the British Nutrition Foundation, gives us many reasons to invest our time, money and interests in the entomophagy (consumption of insects) business.
