Bugs Coming to Dinner Menus

Bugs could be hitting more menus as consumers look for protein alternatives, reports Bloomberg. Insects — already eaten regularly by 2 billion people — use less land and emit fewer greenhouse gases, which means they could offer an answer to environmental concerns about farming beef, pork and poultry. According to the UN, producing a kilogram of crickets takes less than a fifth of the feed needed for the same amount of beef. The edible insect market is expected to pass $1 billion by 2023.
