Entomophagy

Human use of insects as food.

Entomophagy is the technical term for eating insects. The practice is common in many tropical countries where certain insect species grow to large sizes, and they are abundant and relatively easy to harvest year round. Certain insects as food are a source of proteins, vitamins, fats, and essential minerals.
