'Protein loaded' crickets are new future food!

New York, Sept 02 : Nutritious, protein-packed and sustainable insects are apparently the next big thing in food.

The crunchy and nutty flavoured crickets are increasingly coming up as a sustainable snack, the New York Daily News reported.

Aruna Antonella Handa, an advocate of eating bugs, said that insects seem like a really good solution to the future of food, but also the most toxic in terms of resistance from the public.

Handa, who wants to change that, recently hosted a "Future Food Salon" in Chelsea - a food and arts event promoting more sustainable eating habits that showcased all the tasty ways to fry up an insect.

According Eva Muller, director of the UN's Food and Agricultural Organization's Forest Economics, Policy and Products Division, insects are not harmful to eat, and are rather nutritious.
