The future of our food is in the bugs. (2)

If you think that they are joking we have the world’s largest cricket farm for human consumption completed in Canada by Aspire Food Group. This facility “is expected to house four billion crickets and produce 13 million kilograms of insects each year” while being helped by the federal government of course which has invested up to $8.5 million into such a facility. According to Mohammed Ashour the chief executive officer this will help to tackle the planet’s food insecurity problems since “crickets have this incredible ability to convert what they eat into protein biomass.”[1]

Russia also plans to start feeding insects as it has launched its first cricket farm in Novosibirsk Oblast “in a bid to bring a new protein source to feed components market.” This project has been supported by the Russian government’s Innovation Promotion Fund with the plan to stimulate the production of alternative food products as proposed to the government by the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs.[2]

Scientists at Belgium’s University of Ghent are also experimenting with larvae fat to replace butter in pastries. “They say using grease from insects is more sustainable than dairy production. According to research consumers notice no difference when a quarter of the milk butter is replaced with larvae fat.”[3]

In Portland an ice cream shop called Don Bugito founded by Monica Martinez pushes “insect ice cream” as being the past present and future of food since it is on a mission to change how the world sees insects – one mealworm at a time.[4]“Martinez raises crickets and mealwormsat her urban farm in Oakland. “I compare them to nuts and seeds. They have an earthy nutty flavor. Mealworms taste just like pecans or walnuts; crickets taste like pepitas.” So she approaches them as she would nuts or seeds toasting them until crunchy and tossing with cayenne pepper lime juice and sea salt or melted sugar and coconut.

IKEA has also created a new version of its iconic meatballs — made from insects. The Crispy Bug Balls made of mealworms carrots parsnips and beetroot are part of a new range aimed at saving the planet.[5]

The Calgary Stampede has also chosen to walk the globalist path allowing vendors to sell bugs for human consumption with wealworms and crickets being sprinkled on hot dogs:

“All-Beef Meal Worm Hot Dog made using mealworm protein whole roasted mealworms and beef topped off with your favourite condiments (Meal Worms are high in protein and safe to eat) ” a description reads for the “food” being sold by Superbooth.

“All-Beef Cricket Hot Dog made using cricket protein whole roasted crickets and beef topped off with your favourite condiments (Crickets are high in protein and safe to eat) ” reads the description for the Cricket Hot Dogs being sold by The Wurst & Burger Shack.[6]

Aldi a major supermarket chain in the UK is also finalising plans to stock insects on its shelves and market them as a cheap food source for people struggling to afford to feed their families amid soaring inflation and the cost of living crisis.[7]

And just when you thought this couldn’t get more dystopian the same supermarket is involved with a TV game show in which insect “farmers” will pitch the bugs as the “next big thing”.

Also a scientific tell-a-vision program Nova had an episode on eating the bugs because they want to make us a favour and give us an alternative after having a planned food shortage so insect eating (along lab-grown meat) is set in place to be the replacements:

And if you still think that this is all a gimmick here are some photos of food already present on the market which contain insects:
