Abstract:

Increasing world population pressure will create serious problem of food security in coming future. Entomophagy is the consumption of insects by humans, is practised in many countries around the world but predominantly in parts of Asia, Africa and Latin America yet it has not been fully used and developed as a food source. It has the potential of great interest as a possible solution due to their many advantages: (i) they are an important source of protein, fat, carbohydrate and other nutrients; (ii) their use as food has ecological advantages over conventional livestock and, in the long run, economic benefits; (iii) Their rich species diversity and large populations bring diversity in diet menu.
