Would You Eat Bugs for Protein?
We’ve found that 35% of people are actually willing to try eating bugs, which shows a potential shift in people’s opinions when it comes to eating insects. With edible bugs containing more protein than the likes of chicken and tofu, it’s also a sustainable food option. Cricket farming costs less money and resources than chicken farming.
The survey found that out of those who said they exercise daily, nearly half (47%) were up for giving bugs a taste. PureGym have also worked with Eat Grub to create three staple recipes that everyone enjoys, but with the added twist of bugs or cricket powder.
