All of our edible insects that we offer are produced and made in the European Union in compliance with EU food safety and regulations.
The insects are raised properly and without the use of chemical additives. The containers are biodegradable.
Why consume edible insects? Here are some of the reasons:
- Edible insects are delicious and healthy, rich in nutritional values such as proteins, antioxidants, unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins, and few carbohydrates and sugars.
- Much less water is used in the rearing of edible insects without risk of over-fertilizing the soil with liquid manure and therefore without risk to groundwater.
- The substitution of animal proteins for insect proteins is an active protection of the environment.
- Insects as food can replace, at least partially, fishmeal and thus protect against overfishing in our seas. Marine crustaceans can be protected by extracting chitin from insects.
With our commitment, we want to make a contribution to a more sustainable way of life, make our world a little better and offer you a trip to the future now and here in Bicho Raro.
If you have an allergy to house dust mites, crustaceans, molluscs, and shellfish, you should abstain from eating insects.
If you suffer from food allergy or intolerance, please let us know.
