People have been eating insects for thousands of years in some parts of the world but bug-based protein powders, cricket flour cookies and insect recipes are somewhat new to North American consumers. Many start-ups have been working tirelessly to change consumers' perceptions of eating insects and diet and meal-planning app Lifesum is now also helping people to open their minds about insects as an ecologically sound food source.
In collaboration with Entomo Farms, the largest producer of edible insects in North America, Lifesum users may now get a sense of how much protein, fat or fiber edible bugs provide. Additionally, Lifesum is now sharing insect recipes like grasshopper tacos and others meal ideas that include crickets and mealworms.
