For some time Americans have heard Klaus Schwab and his band of Globalistas touting the benefits of eating insects.
Efforts to confirm if they are including insects on the canapé trays during the World Economic Forum's (WEF) Davos Conference have been unsuccessful.
Many Americans presume that unless you choose a bag-of-bugs at your grocer you won't be eating any...that may be a faulty assumption.
Quietly, some food producers have begun including powdered crickets in their food products, apparently with FDA acceptance,
Known as Acheta Powder, ground up hoppers may be found in various products like energy bars, protein shakes, and baked goods like cookies, muffins, and bread.
Consumers who prefer to skip the crickets need to read the ingredients on the foods they buy and look carefully for Acheta or Acheta powder to be listed.
Some know that common foods we all grew up with have for some time had the possibility of insect parts included as an byproduct of the harvesting, storage, or production processes. One common example ketchup, catsup.
The difference now is that Acheta powder is designed to be included in products as a source of protein. Websites are quick to label the Acheta powder a "sustainable" source of protein which brings to mind stories of sustainable energy and sustainable electric vehicles.
Are insects an inevitable food source for humans? We hope not and suspect that knowing Acheta may be included many Americans may start reading ingredients on the food they select so they can still enjoy their Chips, while avoiding the "Chirps."
