In this podcast we talk about the stigma against consuming insects in the U.S. and how we might overcome that stigma to reach new heights.
Underutilized protein power
With another year passing us by, I feel like the discussion of insects as a food source in the U.S. has not gained as much traction as I would like to see. Overall, there are not many large scale projects that are aimed at insect farming and it seems like there is a lot of potential to be had in working to better understand the role of insects in the food industry. I designed this podcast to be aimed at the everyday listener who has probably not thought about insects as anything but pests for a long time. I hope with the imaginative word usage and interesting words from other science major students, that I could spark a conversation about insect foods in the household and maybe sway some people opinions when it comes to consuming insects.
