Learn more about incorporating insects into your flavor repertoire on In-Sight: 4 Unusual Ingredients to Add to Your Flavor Repertoire

 

Another interesting flavor addition that may have never crossed your mind is insects. Entomophagy, the consumption of insects as food, has been a practice for billions of people worldwide. Insects, in fact, are packed with essential minerals, fibers, proteins, and fats. There are more than 1,900 edible insect species to experiment with, each one lending a different flavor profile. Atlanta Chef Parnass Savang, likes to add ants and grasshoppers to salads to add crunch and acidity. 100 grams of ants will give you 14 grams of protein and account for less than 100 calories. Try baking cookies with cricket flour or using mealworms, which provides just as much protein as fish, in a smoothie. The possibilities are indeed endless.
