LANGLEY, British Columbia (Reuters) - Layers of squirming black soldier fly larvae fill large aluminum bins stacked 10-high in a warehouse outside of Vancouver. They are feeding on stale bread, rotting mangoes, overripe cantaloupe and squishy zucchini.
[snip] Enterra Feed, one of an emerging crop of insect growers, will process the bugs into protein-rich food for fish, poultry - even pets. After being fattened up, the fly larvae will be roasted, dried and bagged or pressed to extract oils, then milled into a brown powder that smells like roasted peanuts.

Call me when it’s a 99% part of Hollywood/university/government employee diet.
Until then, shove it in Dorkbama’s Obamahole.
Naked and afraid?
I can’t wait to see the heads explode when it’s discovered raising insects for food produces CO2.
Put enough chocolate on it and I’ll eat anything.
Yep, exactly. This is conditioning for the sheeple while the elites still enjoy the finest.
Eat soylent green and bugs and don’t forget to vote democrat!
As I learned in survival school, a few days out in the boonies with no food and your definition of usable protein will expand considerably.
I think Welfare programs should be primarily food-based:
Rice, beans, cheese, powered milk, oil, ...
But if they want to supplement this with lots of insects for good protein, I’m all for it!! I imagine it would sharply cut back on the number of people making use of Welfare programs.
Why do I smell, an animal rights group or a vegan group or both planning to sell this for human consumption> ICK!!!
The lawyers must be, already getting ready, to file lawsuits.
Yep, concur. Most people have never been hungry enough to realize what you will eat when you get to a certain point.
I say it’s time to humanely harvest some of the wild horses who have little to eat and one to care for them.
If they are to be sold to Mexcico or to France, they should not be overcrowded or treated cruelly.
Let’s try this first, then we’ll talk worms, but as ground up flour only.
Sounds like a backwardsass solution to a simple logistics problem. Why not just get the bread, mangoes, cantaloupe and zucchini to the human food table before it goes bad?
At one time, back in colonial days, lobster was used as food for the slaves.What goes around.....?
Because the Musks, Zuckerbergs, Merkels, and Obamas of the world need all the prime rib for their mansions.
Every year there’s some stupid article about how we’re all gonna eat bugs. So far, still steak in my food.
