Finland’s largest food company has jumped on the insect food bandwagon with insect bread.
One loaf of bread contains 70 dried house crickets ground into powder and added to the flour.
The crickets make up 3 per cent of the bread’s overall weight. The UN’s Food and Agricultural Organisation is promoting insects as a human food source. Insects are high in protein and minerals and produce less greenhouse gases and ammonia than cows and other livestock. Insects also require less land and money to cultivate.
