Insect as food in Nigeria

Spread the love

Entomophagy describes the practise of eating insects by humans.the eggs, larvae, pupae and adults of certain insects have been eatenby humans from prehistoric time to the present day.

Most parts of the country in nigeria eat insects like locust, winged Termite, Grasshopers, palm weavil larvae and crickets are eaten by most parts of the country.

Food insects neophobia is practiced widely in most parts of Nigeria. Food insects neophobia is the fear of unknown new unfamiliar food and this have made it very difficult for entomophagy to be practiced in some parts of Nigeria.

Nigeria is the largest country in Africa and one of the most populated countries in the world. the demand for food is gets higher than food produced by day, I believe introduction of processed insects as food would come a long way to help the country tackle the food insecurity of the country.

Apart from its unique taste, Edible Insects are considered highly nutritional; the majority of them are rich in protein, healthy fats, iron, and calcium, and low in carbohydrates. In fact, the authors of the FAO report claim that insects are just as – if not more – nutritious than commonly consumed meats, such as beef.
