Insects - the alternative source of animal protein

An environmentally friendly alternative to our world's food crisis

Could these little guys save our planet?

The simple answer is a resounding - YES!  Added to animal and fish feed, insect protein packs an extra punch at a fraction of the cost both to the environment and to the farmer's pocket. Insect farming requires little space, no land clearing, minimal water, and it creates less waste - in fact insects feed on waste! Abbatoirs are unnecessary as insects expire naturally when temperatures are reduced.
Insect eating by humans is not new. The Biblical Moses encouraged the eating of locusts, grasshoppers and beetles while the Ancient Greeks served cicadas at feasts and the Romans were fond of stag beetle larvae. Almost 2000 species of insects have been documented as nutritious and protein and vitamin rich thereby enabling a wide range of mealtime choices as well as creativity in the kitchen!
Explore this site to discover insect protein facts, get tips on how to start your own small insect farm - or take this opportunity to invest in our excting, environmentally friendly  large scale operation soon to be launched.

About Us - Future Food

Iain & Sue Foulds "discovered" ENTOMPOHAGY while researching viable environmentally friendly alternatives to current farming practices and products. This journey has led them to a deep commitment to  informing and educating the public at large to the huge environmental benefits of introducing insect protein to the global animal feed and human diet while at the same time facilitating the start up of insect farms and insect protein food factories throughout the world.

You already eat insects

The crimson dye of the cochineal beetle is used in  surumi (crabsticks), frapuccinos, strawberry yoghurts, marinades and sauces, ice creams, jams and jam donuts, pie fillings, juices, alcoholic drinks such as Campari, non-alcoholic drinks such as Ocean Spray, and even in red lipstick.Honey is basically bee vomit while prawns, crabs and lobsters are all arthropods which are a species of insect. And just as sausages and steaks are prepared from pigs and cows, insects can be ground into flour, shelled and even coated in chocolate. Once you conquer your irrational squeamishness at the thought of eating insects and actually try them, you'll find they taste great.
