..to convince people not to eat bugs, because Big Food doesn't like that they're free. Insects are incredibly insanely nutritious, and we kill them and leave them like its going out of style. He convinced the TV world that eating bugs was "gross" and something to be feared by feeding people completely unprepared live bugs. Just because they are free. (also they are non-gmo and free range ppl!!) Here is the most official chart possible for lazies and monetized food shills. http://www.fao.org/docrep/018/i3253e/i3253e06.pdf They cannot deny the amazing dietary value of insects, however they do their best to not exactly promote eating them. They don't test many bugs and they do not perform the detailed breakdown in the tests vs beef with the best insects they could. (still the tested insects destroy beef in most categories) There are also moments like this; " - metamorphic stage and diet highly influence nutritional value,making all-encompassing statements on the micronutrient content of insect species of little value" LOL They vary yeah, but they all have the goods people. It's still an eyeopening read and well prepared, even if certain sections are written entirely op-ed by the FAO without any quoting from the tests they drew the data from. I just don't have time for shills. (insects also have amino acids that are hard to find, and some that are not listed in this specific study) I'd recommend searching yourself as everything I found was amazing and I could go all day. (though reads are long). Also you need to make sure you are searching for the bugs in your area and ones that don't just eat whatever. (though most bugs are picky eaters and we don't throw a trough in front of a single one of them) Kids that squash caterpillars at recess don't know, if they had just eaten it too, it would have been the most nutritious thing they probably ate all day.
