Insects for Dinner? <>
<>No-no, not squashed fly between pages of your plastic menu or little roach that scrambles out from under your plate in a restaurant, but one that gets delivered in your dinner on purpose.
<> Arthropods, or organisms with jointed legs are clearly related to lobsters, crabs and other edible beings in ocean. It's been determined that lobsters are actually sea-going cockroaches and in addition, lobster exoskeletons also have same jointed legs and antennae as grasshoppers.
In comparison, grasshoppers should be more desirable than lobsters. Grasshoppers eat clean grass; lobsters eat sea garbage like dead fish and other remains on murky ocean floor.
Of course we all eat some insects unknowingly. Aphids cling to lettuce leaves, and weevils and beetles can reside in flour and rice undetected. The FDA actually has a measurement of ‘acceptable’ insect presence in food.
