Abstract

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) indicated that some insects have a high nutritional value, as they contain quantities of fats, protein, vitamins, fiber, and minerals. Eating insects is more sustainable than meat and chicken. Compared to meat, insect production requires less agricultural land, or about half, than chicken. Cockroaches need about one-twelfth the volume of food needed by livestock to produce the same amount of protein, according to the FAO [1]. Raising insects results in the release of lower amounts of gas emissions.
