    Wink Finnish bakery makes bread out of crushed insects

    If you have ever heard about how the global animal meat trade and its production is forever putting insane pressure on resource usage and dangerous emissions, you will know that one of the solutions is the use of more insects as a source of our food. Full of protein and many other things that are good for you, this is one area that understandably hasn't got people jumping to make the change.
    According to the UN, more than 1,900 species of insect are used for food.The UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) began a programme in 2013 to encourage the breeding and consumption of insects.

    Juhani Sibakov, head of innovation at Fazer, said the concept had been in development since last summer, but it could not be launched until approved by Finnish authorities.
    Finland recently is looking to help in that regard, after lifting the ban on insects being used in food (gross fact: there is actually a minimum amount of insect remains permitted to be in a lot of our food because of the near impossibility to avoid trace amounts getting in) earlier this month and now a bakery in Finland is putting out a bread made from crushed crickets.

    Aren't insects already used for food colourings anyway?

    I mean.. I'd try it for sure, it's hardly much different from eating dead animals is it?

    You are very likely using crushed insects more than you think in your day-to-day life Milli.

    Look into your cosmetics. I remember hearing in a quiz question that a lot of the colour red comes from a certain type of farmed beetle. Unfortunately I forget the actual answer.

    I ain't saying i wouldn't try it but maybe with some good amount of butter and some ham. chorizo and cheese it would maybe not taste that bad or would actually favour the taste.
