Insects are a good source of proteins and fats. Edible insects are recently widely being exploited as food for humans and animals in many countries across the globe. Also, using insects for food and feed applications over conventional alternatives has significant ecological advantages.
Insects can be a good source of protein for animals as they are rich in protein and can also extract protein from waste material and facilitate significant reductions in the volume of waste. This has led to the idea of exploring insects as sustainable sources of protein. To exploit this opportunity, a large number of startups are investing in edible insects rearing and processing business and launching innovative products in the market.
