Beetleburgers could soon reach mass production — helping to feed the world (studyfinds.org)

“Mixed with sugar, the beetles supposedly taste just like real meat. They could also become alternatives to sausages or chicken nuggets.”

PARIS — Beetleburgers could soon be helping to feed the world, according to new research. The creepy crawlers’ larvae — better known as mealworms — could act as a meat alternative to alleviate hunger worldwide. The process uses a fraction of the land and water and emits a smaller carbon footprint in comparison of traditional farming.

What do you think?

Lol! How much longer before we actually see commercials, billboards/advertisements pushing the bugs?

They will fail but they will make us all miserable in the process.

Think about it. Pre 20th century, the world ran fine, post 20th century, the world is dying.

It has existed for billions of years, not even a meteor shower took it out.

It’ll be fine. Global warming is KEY to absolute control. You control environment, you control people.

This has likely been what’s actually in fast, frozen and canned foods for a very long time already (not to mention all the ground real meats we almost certainly don’t want to know the sources of).
Mealworms are already a choice feed/protein supplement for poultry (and quite expensive as that) so I imagine this will become yet one more excuse they add to the heap for why the already dwindling poultry farming will become “unsustainable”.
