Abstract

Interest in the use of insects as food is increasing, not least because they are both nutritious and sustainable! Despite these factors, the vast majority of people, mostly in Western cultures, are reluctant to put insects into their mouths. In some European countries the use of insects as food is prohibited by law. The aim of this review is to give an overall insight into insects as food from the perspectives of sustainability, nutrition, consumer attitudes and European legislation.
