Eating insects is generally seen as a pretty disgusting thing, especially in the western world...but what if it became more necessary and more of a norm? Things like cricket flour and mealworms are becoming more popular as a great source of protein. Would you give this kind of diet a go or is it a step too far?

Watch (or listen to!) the latest podcast to hear more of the guys' thoughts on insect protein: https://sorted.club/s4e5/

Big thanks to EatGrub and their marketing team for help with some of their research. You can read more from them here: https://www.eatgrub.co.uk/
This is where we bought the live mealworms if you're interested: http://horizoninsects.co.uk/

Our friends over at Dokke forage a lot of their food and we loved trying ants when we visited...book an experience with the restaurant here: https://sorted.club/

You always touch so itneresting topics one doesn't ever even think about. Bravo!

Honestly i'm rather curious about eating insects
Brian Patterson
Fascinating. I'm all for it as long as it doesn't negatively effect the taste. The health benefits, sustainability, and the fraction of harm to the earth are too good to pass up. Plus the possibility to actually add flavor to a dish in a restaurant type environment is amazing. If we could get the rest of the world on board that'd be incredible!

Bug battle!

I know I shouldn’t say this, but I don’t think I can eat most bugs. Like a cricket or grasshopper I could eat. Not a worm. However, I know we need to find better protein sources for the health of the planet. I’d honestly give some a try one once

I'm glad on the survey that the second highest was 26% of people are being stopped by limited availability. That's a factor that can be tackled fairly easily

Hey! Mexican here!
We have cooked ant eggs (that I have tried and are really good in tacos), crickets of all sorts, even this one kind of bug that looks like a shrimp and its cooked like seafood, tarantulas, spiders, big bottom ants and supersized ants... I have tried only some of them, I'm not that fond of their flavors but there is a wide variety over here. Though most of us are not quite ready either. Come over and try them! I'll show you around Mexico city!

There is a buffet restaurant near me that have a bowl of insects in a window where you can have stuff flash-cooked. First time I went there it was shocking to me, but went back to get one just to see what it was like. Now every time I go there I nibble on those insects. It is more of a mental barrier than anything. You can also win pretty cool prices at events where it is more of a dare.

Hello from Mexico, here a lot of people eat crickets, they are not consumed like a sustitution of protein specially in the cities, they are snacks usually salted or with chilli, to acompany with tequila, mezcal or in a meal, inside a chili sauce, or tlayuda (like a mexican pizza). To me, they are pretty good.

7:54 This is exactly what I feel. As long as it no longer looks like the creature it started as, I could eat it. If you grind up bugs at put it in breach, as long as it tastes good I'm fine with it. What I am given a whole, intact bug or fish, I can't do it.

Here in Thailand, deep fried bamboo worm (1:48) is our delicacy.

Also seems like they'd be really easy to turn into a ground beef substitute.
