Health

Insects are healthy, nutritious alternatives to mainstream staples such as chicken, pork, beef and even fish.

Many insects are rich in protein and good fats and high in calcium, iron and zinc.

Insects already form a traditional part of many regional and national diets.

Environmental

Insects promoted as food emit considerably fewer greenhouse gases (GHGs) than most livestock (methane, for instance, is produced by only a few insect groups, such as termites and cockroaches).

Insect rearing is not necessarily a land-based activity and does not require land clearing to expand production. Feed is the major requirement for land.

The ammonia emissions associated with insect rearing are also far lower than those linked to conventional livestock, such as pigs.

Because they are cold-blooded, insects are very efficient at converting feed into protein (crickets, for example, need 12 times less feed than cattle, four times less feed than sheep, and half as much feed as pigs and broiler chickens to produce the same amount of protein).

Insects can be fed on organic waste streams.

Livelihoods

Insect harvesting/rearing is a low-tech, low-capital investment option that offers entry even to the poorest sections of society.

Mini livestock offer livelihood opportunities for both urban and rural people.

Insect rearing can be low-tech or very sophisticated, depending on the level of investment.

How your money is helping the planet

Eden is a charity, running transformational social and environmental projects. So when you buy something from the shop, you're helping to make a difference.

One of our major projects to help fight climate change is the planned geothermal power plant at Eden, which is to produce renewable heat and electricity from deep inside the Cornish granite – to heat our Biomes and feed power into the national grid.
