Mealworms become the first insects to be approved as food in Europe

Jan 14, 2021 15:48 IST

Mealworms may soon make their way on menus across Europe, after the European Food Safety Agency approved the yellow grubs to be used in flour, as well as in curries along with other recipes. As per a report by Reuters, they're rich in fibre, fat and protein and has been used as an ingredient in pet food. EFSA's statement is a step closer, as officials consider approving the sale of cookies, protein bars and other items that contain the bugs. The report also stated that there may be psychological hurdles that may prevent people from trying these items.
