Eating insects to save the planet
Feb. 8, 2017 | Form VI students had the pleasure of tasting insect-based edible products in...French class!
That's right, this was not a science lab! As part of their unit on possible proteins of the future, Mme Mesnil's class was treated to exquisite snacks just before lunch. Students were given the choice between uKa protéine's cherry & green tea- or chocolate & cayenne seed-flavoured protein bars made with flour sourced from crickets. With the world's population booming and global resources diminishing, startup businesses have begun sourcing bug nutrients as a means to feed human beings. With this ecological perspective in mind, Quebec-based entrepreneurs uKa protéine are selling and promoting the consumption of edible insects with a selection of products.
