UBC Land and Food Systems researcher Yasmin Akhtar holds an insect-tasting event to promote bugs as a sustainable source of protein. Approximately 1,500 species of insects are considered edible. Insects could contribute to a more sustainable source of protein and serve as an alternative to meat. Insects hold promise as a sustainable food source, and they may be a solution to world hunger in an economically sound and environmentally friendly manner.
