Science will feed everyone with insects

Good news for everyone who is afraid of the overpopulation of the Earth and the associated hunger.
Insects will save us and feed us.
Science is already ready for this.
And the Russian Federation does not lag behind others. Now flies or a cockroach in baked goods will not be perceived with disgust, but as a useful and eye-pleasing delicacy. You just need to change something in your mind. And then the larvae of flies or caviar of toads will pass for black caviar, if not cooler. Flour from worms or caterpillars will become fashionable and in demand.

Developments for the production of meat and bakery products from insect protein will become available to Russians in the coming years, Andrei Zyuzin, managing partner of the Fuel for Growth venture fund, a member of the FoodNet roadmap working group of the National Technology Initiative (NTI), told RIA Novosti.

“In the next 10 years, new types of products with an unusual but useful composition will appear in Russia. For example, vegetable and cellular meat or baked goods made from insect protein. The first products are already beginning to appear on store shelves, but insect dishes will only appear on the menu of Russians. in a couple of years, “Zyuzin said.

He recalled that insect products are now consumed mainly by residents of China, Thailand, India and Mexico: this protein is known for its immunomodulatory and hypoallergenic properties.

“In Russia, however, insects are still used primarily as feed for animals and fish in large-scale industries. Nevertheless, some companies are already planning to launch in the country the production of pasta, flour and baked goods with the addition of protein from the larvae of the Black Lion fly,” the source said. …

Another trend of the next decade is food from a 3D printer. According to the NTI roadmap, by 2028, Russians will be able to independently produce their own food on such a device. Developments in this area are already underway, one of them suggests that on a home device it will be possible to print meat from vegetable protein or from pre-cultured meat cells. On an industrial scale, plans to release 3D-printed products have already been announced by KFC, it intends to produce chicken nuggets in this way.

“It is possible that by 2030 Russia will have systems that allow residents of megacities to skip meals. such a device will not be able to have dinners, but it will allow busy people to refresh their bodies for a while, “Zyuzin added.

However, I don’t know about you, but I am a little sorry for these insects, which are prepared for mass slaughter.
Still, they do not yet have such powerful defenders as Greta.
There is no one to put in a word for them.
Eh! Where, you fool! Stop!
