Sammanfattning

Insects is already part of the diet in many regions of the world, and in parts of Asia, Africa, Mexico and Southern America the eating of insects is part of a long tradition and cultural heritage3 . An example of a country where the consumption of insects is steadily increasing is Thailand4 .There were some cultural differences between Swedish and Thai students in regard to their disposition to react with disgust to certain food-related stimuli as measured by the Food Disgust Scale. Swedish students were more concerned than those from Thailand about putting animal cartilage into the mouth and by eating with dirty silverware in a restaurant. Thai students where on the other hand more disgusted than Swedes by eating hard cheese from which mold was cut off or to eat apple slices that has turned brown when exposed to air.
