Caption: Insects for human consumption. Man eating a house cricket (Acheta domesticus) that has been bred for human consumption. This company is the first in Europe authorised to breed insects as food for humans. Insects contain a far higher protein content that meat from traditional farm animals. It is thought that insect-sourced protein could be the answer to food shortage problems of the future. Breeding insects is also far less labour intensive and has a much lower impact on the environment. Photographed at Micronutris, Toulouse, France.
