Sainsbury’s, a UK supermarket chain, is launching an edible insect range.

“Smoky BBQ crunchy roasted crickets” will be on sale at 250 stores around the country as experts say they are the future of food.

Sainsbury’s will become the first UK high street supermarket to stock edible insects.

The Eat Grub’s “smoky BBQ crunchy roasted crickets” are described as “crunchy in texture with a rich smoky flavour”.

Packets of the insects will cost £1.50 (NZ$2.80).

Fried insects are already a popular food source in many parts of the world.

Dried crickets contain more protein per gram than beef, with 68g of protein per 100g, compared to 31g of protein in beef.

Edible insects are also said to be more sustainable than other meat, taking up less land and requiring less animal feed than livestock.

Would you try edible insects?
Do you think they are the ‘food of the future’? Why or why not?
