      Ugh. One of my sons works at a meat processing plant and says you wouldn't eat anything if you knew the half of what went on.

              Cochineal comes from the cochineal beetle but some food dye is artificuial and made of chemiclas. Rather have the natural one./ Some bugs are actually quite nice. When out East in the merchamnt navy I used to eat then ask what it was afterwards. So far the only things I have not ben able to eat have been tripe and chickens feet. The latter tastes OK bit is very rubbery and a lot of effort for a little meat.

                    I'd eat marzipan bugs...but not what this article is talking about!

                    I wonder if there's such a thing as mad bug disease...

                        Keep away from our biochemistry students then!! They sometimes store live maggots in the fridge and then feed pitcher plants the maggots and analyse the pitcher plant juice to find out how well the plants can extract nutrients from maggots (yes they have to do a nutrition analysis on maggots too).

                        I think I would eat bugs if it was a matter of survival. I'm not so sure about anything live though. Like witchety grubs. Yuk. Especially as I know the dark area at one end is grub poo. Don't fancy eating that!

                          Okay, I didn't read the article completely but surely they're talking about aking it into something palatable like a veggie burger patty...with dried and seasoned bugs....crushed beyond recognition. Still, the thought - gag...

                          I used to raise meal worms for our tarantula and sometimes for my love birds....

                            What you don't know won't hurt though in a veggie burger a bug would be classed as meat and therefore not suitable for vegetarians!!

                              [QUOTE=cosmic grammie;499792]Like with shrimp.QUOTE]

                              I remember once being taken out to dinner in Hong Kong. They ordered the house special ality of jumping prawns. Some live prawns were brought out in a covered glass dish. Then some vinegar and alcohol was added, the prawns react making them jump (only very fresh prawns will jump). When the alcohol had stupified them, they were removed and cooked at the table in some chicken stock. You then had them dished up to eat. It was slightly a sureal experience to see an animal die in front of you and then immediately eat it. Once over the intial qualms, I have to admit they did taste good.
