Convincing the masses to eat bugs is gaining more momentum as the globalists and their media cohorts reach another milestone in replacing meat with insect protein, now it’s beetleburgers.
Last year, The Daily Fetched reported that aid agencies were already trialing ‘insect diets’ on people suffering from starvation in third-world countries.
However, the push to normalize eating bugs has gone a step further, as ‘Beetleburgers’ could soon be helping to feed the rest of the world, according to new research.
According to StudyFinds, insect larvae, or mealworms, could act as a meat alternative to alleviate hunger worldwide.
The outlet claims the process uses a fraction of the land and water, emitting a smaller carbon footprint than traditional farming.
French biotech company Ynsect is now planning a global network of insect farms, including nurseries and slaughterhouses with a pilot plant already set up at Dole in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comte region of France.
“Mixed with sugar, the beetles supposedly taste just like real meat. They could also become alternatives to sausages or chicken nuggets.” – researchers say.
“We are in full control of the chain of production. That gives us strength in terms of quality, security and safety,” says Benjamin Armenjon, general manager of Ynsect, according to a statement from SWNS.
As StudyFinds reports:
The mealworms are fed byproducts from wheat processing. Mixed with sugar, the beetles supposedly taste just like real meat. They could also become alternatives to sausages or chicken nuggets.
The firm is experimenting with optimal conditions for mass production — such as food,
temperature, and humidity — at its Paris headquarters.
Ynsect researchers are also analyzing nutritional content and the potential of using other insects. A bigger factory is opening in Amiens later this year. It will manufacture 200,000 tons of insect-based foods annually, making it the world’s biggest insect farm.
The World Economic Forum has long championed the consumption of bugs; here is what the WEF says on their official website:
The world’s population will reach 9.7 billion people by 2050. This means that despite only 4% of arable land on the surface of our planet, an additional 2 billion more humans will have to be fed.
To address this impending crisis, world experts and leaders will meet this autumn at the UN Food Summit and then the COP26. Often overlooked in these discussions is the potential role insects can play in helping meet this challenge.
Insects are a credible and efficient alternative protein source requiring fewer resources than conventional breeding. Studies suggest that for the same amount of protein produced, insects, mealworms in particular, require much less land than other sources of animal proteins. A study on crickets suggests they are twice as efficient in converting feed to meat as chicken, at least four times more efficient than pigs and 12 times more efficient than cattle.
Today, 12% of the world’s wild whole-fish catch is used for farmed fish in the form of fishmeal. An alternative to fishmeal can be the products resulting from the processing of insects such as the Tenebrio Molitor. It has been shown that with mealworm, mortality in farmed fish is reduced by 40%.
Insect protein has high-quality properties and can be used as an alternative source of protein throughout the food chain, from feed for aquaculture to ingredients for nutritional supplements for humans and pets. All animal species, regardless of their diet, eat insects in their natural diet.
Last August, The Daily Fetched reported that South Korean scientists announced that eating worms could help humanity “save the planet,” as per a study published at the time,
The researchers also admit that eating the slimy invertebrates suffer something of an “image problem.”
The cooked mealworms, or beetle larvae, with added sugar, creates a “meat” alternative, which researchers claim tastes authentic as an acceptable alternative nutrition source.
“Recently, eating insects has become of interest because of the increasing cost of animal protein, as well as the associated environmental issues,” In Hee Cho, Ph.D., the project’s principal investigator, said in announcing the findings.
“Insects are a nutritious and healthy food source with high amounts of fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, fiber and high-quality protein, which is like that of meat,” says Cho, whose team is at Wonkwang University (South Korea).
