A new food perspective


Welcome to éntomo—a new food perspective and online resource that encourages you to learn about and explore insects as a new and exciting food source! Our online resource provides you with information about
entomophagy, tasty tips for cooking with insects, events and insights from around the world, and much more that together will help create for
you a novel lifestyle that is sustainable and nutritious.

éntomo attempts to stimulate and promote change in sustainability: we want to tackle some of the 'wicked problems' that western urban-centric societies face every day such as global warming and depleting land resources used for agricultural farming. Through éntomo, we have found a way to marry our deep love for all things tasty and nutritious with society's need for an alternative food source to feed future generations. éntomo is an ongoing design research and development project so if you would like to work with us, donate or share news please get in touch!


Entomophagy is the term used to describe eating insects. Eating bugs is not a modern phenomenon—entomophagy has been part of many world cultures for thousands of years and today in Thailand, South America, and China, bugs are considered a great delicacy. An important food source for humans as well as many animals, insects can provide us with an efficient, safe, sustainable, and healthy global food supply. It is estimated that in parts of Asia and Africa over two billion people eat insects each day! Bugs are easy to manage, provide the necessary nutrients for a staple diet, and above all they taste absolutely delicious!

DID YOU KNOW?

Currently, livestock occupy 70 percent of all farmland across the world. In contrast to this, mealworms only require 10 percent of the land used for the production of beef, 30 percent of the land used to produce pork, 40 percent of the land needed for chickens yet they can provide us with similar amounts of protein.
