Why have we ruled out human use of our proteins?

Insect production for human consumption is still a relatively small market globally. Although insects are a common food source in many traditional cultures in Asia, Africa and Latin America, they have not yet been widely accepted as food in Western countries.




There are a number of factors that could limit the growth of the insect market for human consumption, including the lack of rules and regulations for insect production and trade, food safety concerns, and the lack of a traditional food culture that accepts insects as food.

Furthermore, insect farming for human consumption is still in its infancy and cannot yet meet the global demand for protein.

Nevertheless, there is a growing interest in insects as a source of protein because of their environmental sustainability, and insect farming for human consumption is becoming increasingly popular among producers and consumers.

In Italy, insects are not yet widely accepted as food for human consumption, although there are some examples of production and trade of insects for human consumption.

European legislation allows the marketing of certain insect species for human consumption, but insects must be handled and prepared in accordance with hygiene and health regulations.

In Italy, there are some companies producing and selling insects as food for human consumption, but the market is still relatively small and insects are not yet widely accepted as food in Italian food culture.
