Our current way of producing and consuming food causes a great many of serious problems with drastic ecological consequences. We urgently need to rethink our food production and integrate new ingredients into our daily menus.
Mealworms are a viable alternative to this damaging food system. They are eco-friendly, resource- and place-saving, nutritious and above all extremely delicious. However, humans are very reluctant to change their eating habits. As insects are still unfamiliar in many food-cultures the foreign food must first of all be integrated in peoples’ everyday life in order to overcome their reluctance of the new ingredient.
