The idea of eating locust and wild honey might be repulsive to some people but this food combination was one of the numerous approved food combinations in the Holy Bible. But are there any health benefits?
I personally do not query anyone on this subject because the idea of making insect a part of our diets is pretty tough to accept.
However studies have shown that locusts are a good source of protein, vitamins, fatty acids and minerals.
According to the book “Insects” by Steve Parker, species of locusts vary in protein content from about 50 percent of dry weight to almost 60 percent, making them denser in protein than cows!
Despite the destructive tendencies of locusts in farmlands they are not entirely useless. So whether fried, roasted or smoked, a meal of locusts combined with honey is a complete meal or snack!
Why don’t you try some?
