Slowly cooked in a special oven at low temperature, all the flavours and aroma of the spices are enhanced as long as the nutritional values of the grasshoppers. Eating grasshoppers with JIMINI'S is more than just tasty!
Edible insects farming: from ecological benefits to nutritional ones
The environmental benefits of insect farming are often highlighted, and it is well-deserved! Indeed, while traditional farming consumes alarming amounts of water, feed and space, the edible grasshopper is much more thrifty. He does not need much to thrive: 10 kg of food is enough to produce 8kg of insects when it only provides for 1kg of beef.
What’s more, insect farming can arise 3 dimensions whereas it is quite difficult to imagine piling cows up to a farm’s ceiling! Another advantage: living insects reject almost no greenhouse gases, which is far from true as cows and sheep are concerned. Nutritive advantages are not to be forgotten too: the edible insect is often richer in proteins than traditional meat (for the same weight), which implies that quantities produced can be reduced, and thus, less natural resources will be needed!
However, for these benefits to have a large-scale impact, we’ll have to wait for edible insect farming to spread in our western countries, which are huge meat-eaters. 10kg of food will then be enough to produce 8kg of insects instead of the only 1kg of beef.
