Description Edible insects were eaten in prehistoric times, but today their eating is shrouded in neophobia, the fear of new foods. Therefore, foods in which insects are not visible at first sight may be accepted, which is not a problem nowadays. On the market we can find a variety of products containing edible insects, for example, we can buy saltine crackers, protein bars, protein drink, pasta, dried insects and others. It is also possible to use insect powder in the kitchen for cooking and baking, especially from the house cricket, which seems to be a good candidate in terms of its nutritional profile.
