Insects for food security

Posted on : Tuesday, 13th September 2016

 The department of food science and nutrition at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology is working to finalize research aimed at scaling farming in Kenya to foster food and nutrition security through insects. This comes after a successful research on cricket farming which is rich in protein, vitamin b and iron.

The university revealed that the department of food science has also embarked on researching other insects like grasshoppers and termites which will be domesticated once the research is completed. According to two postgraduate students who successfully researched on the cricket farming, the insects are rich in protein as compared to other foods.
