Description of the research topic:

Consumer perception of insect as food in some countries In recent years there has been an increasing interest in replacing the increasingly expensive soybean meal and fishmeal with insect flour. Insect flour has a high content of protein and fat, favorable content of unsaturated fatty acids, which plays an important physiological role. In addition, its production has a small environmental footprint. Some countries (especially Asia and Africa) have a tradition of eating insect as a food commodity, but nowadays insect food is available in many European countries as well. However, the social perception of the consumption of insect as food has not yet been surveyed deeply.
