Fried Bee Pupae, yum! Ok, so it really doesn’t look that appetizing to me, but in the majority of the United States and other countries we have been taught that insects shouldn’t be found in our food. Not so in other parts of the world where insects are either a staple or a delicacy.
In many parts of the world insects provide cheap and plentiful source of protein. They are far more efficient source of protein (in terms of resource required per pound) than beef, pork and other meat usually found on or tables. Nutritionally bee larvae are equivalent to a good lean stake and supposedly have a nutty taste (I’ll take their word for it). Adult bees have somewhat less nutritional value than the pupae.
