Author(s): Latha V, Niharika Tiwari and Monisha C
Abstract: Insects are a great source of protein and are often low in fat, making them a nutritious and sustainable food source. Some commonly consumed insects include crickets, grasshoppers, mealworms, and beetles. Insect delicacies refer to the consumption of insects as food. While this may seem unusual or unappetizing to some, many cultures around the world have been eating insects as part of their diet for centuries. Insects can be prepared in a variety of ways, such as roasted, fried, or boiled. They can also be ground up into a powder and used as an ingredient in recipes such as protein bars or smoothies. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in insect delicacies in Western countries as a way to promote sustainable and eco-friendly eating habits. However, it's important to note that not all insects are safe for consumption and proper preparation is necessary to avoid any health risks.
