The consumption of insects, is being promoted as an alternative sustainable source of protein for humans and even animals. In addition to this, more than 1900 insects have been recognized as edible. Rising population and declining food resources, higher protein and nutrients such as copper, iron, manganese, magnesium, and zinc, lesser risk of zoonotic diseases such as Ebola, swine and bird flu in comparison with poultry products are the major factors boosting the market growth.
