Encouraging Entomophagy In The West [Read more]
A domestic kitchen device that processes living insects so they are safe for human consumption.
2 billion people currently eat insects worldwide and although entomophagy is not considered a Western cultural norm, it is one of the most sustainable food solutions. As populations grow there is an increasing demand for food security. Overcoming the social stigma associated with entomophagy in the West is key to the success of the edible insect market. Allowing users to process living insects in their own homes with the knowledge that they are both safe to consume and high in nutrition will help to reduce this stigma. Insect processing includes fasting, washing, slaughter, blanching, rapid cooling and oven drying. Controlling these processes is key to ensuring insects are both safe to consume and have the best nutritional profile possible. Temperature sensors and a carefully designed centrifuge mechanism allow the user to carry out these processes with the knowledge that they are being done correctly and efficiently.
