You may be aware of the fact that people in other countries regularly munch on insects. In some cases, they’re considered a delicacy. In other cases, they’re a part of the everyday fare. However, in the United States, this is considered to be pretty abnormal. But brace yourself, because insect trends of using them as food are starting to become more commonplace.
The Start of a Business Centered on Insects as Food
Harman Johar, a student from the University of Georgia actually started his own business that offers insects as food. His business concept started because of work he did as an entomology student. His goal is to change people’s perceptions of insects as tasteless.
Johar feels that it’s important for insects to be raised organically. He does so himself, raising many of them in his own apartment. He feeds them organic oats and produce. Currently, he has the market cornered, and his customers are both private individuals and businesses.
Can You Get Past the Mindset of Eating Insects?
Is it possible that consuming bugs is going to be one of the hot new insect trends? Johar insists that it’s a matter of changing your mindset.
