Introduction to “Entomophagy” Lab 2015


Can insects be considered as being edible and a good source of carbohydrates (lipids and protein)? Edible insects; you may feel that these two words do not even belong in the same sentence. You have every right to be skeptical. In all probability, you have never deliberately eaten an insect. However you have probably inadvertently consumed over a pound of insects in your lifetime. There is a term for this. The word is Entomophagy (en-ta-ma-f-a-gy) or bug eating.
