It seems that the great crises that the world is witnessing at the present moment will contribute to changing many of the constants related to the lives of millions of people, not only with regard to calls for rationalization, but also in habits, which appears in a decision taken by the European Commission to consider the house cockroach and scale worm as permitted food. .
The decision coincides with a large wave of high prices and inflation in the old continent, in light of the repercussions of the Ukrainian crisis, which was reflected in food prices, in the past months, and which prompted many protests that took place in many capitals recently, which pushes towards the need to work on finding Solutions to contain the complex crises the world is witnessing.
According to the decision of the European Commission, starting today, Tuesday, it became permissible to use frozen, dried or powdered crickets, while next Thursday will be the starting point for adding dishes of crustaceans to European tables.-
The European Commission is currently considering eight additional applications for a food licence, with manufacturers having to apply for permission for each insect they want to put on the market.-
According to the European Commission’s assessment, house crickets and cutworm larvae are safe for human consumption, but may pose a risk to people with food allergies.
