Caption: Insects for human consumption. Dish made using mealworms that have been bred for human consumption. Mealworms are the larvae of the mealworm beetle (Tenebrio molitor). 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 in Nice, France.
