The problem with eating insects is that they are far too expensive. Meat seems to be cheaper per unit weight. But recently I discovered that amazon sell dried silkworm pupae meant for koi but they look okay to me and are cheap. £10 for 1kg plus free delivery. I also found in the link below that they should be pretty safe to eat as well.
This is a very enlightening quote from this wiki article on pet food which says:
All ingredients used for pet food has to be fit for human consumption according to EU requirements. But regulations require that pet food that contains by-products be labeled as "Not for human consumption" even though such by-products have to be derived from animals declared fit for human consumption. Raw pet food has to be labeled "Pet food only".
So this koi food should be fit for human consumption.
Has anyone tried cooking dried silkworm pupae meant for koi carp ?
Is there any of you who thinks or has evidence that it would be dangerous for humans to eat these?
