Insects are packed with protein and have a fairly small carbon footprint. What may surprise you is that insects as food is a billion dollar market!
There are more than 2,000 species of edible insect and insects are eaten around the world, though less so in the west. Besides protein, insects provide fat, nutrients and essential amino acids, as well as important minerals.
As far as carbon footprint goes, insect cultivation only uses a fraction of the land that is required for the raising of cattle. They also emit far less CO2 than is produced in beef production.
