Entomophagy: the Art of Bug Eating

To some folks, eating bugs is something they would never consider doing voluntarily, there’s an ick factor they can’t get over. At Texas Discovery Gardens, our staff are no strangers to the world of Entomophagy. We’ve tried cricket protein bars, chocolate covered meal worms, ant candy, and fried grubs. 

There are around 1500 edible insect species. But why eat insects? Insects have better nutritional value compared to other animals; they’re high in protein and low in fat.
