Edible insects show promise for food security

文字-A A +A

Raising pigs and cattle produces large amounts of carbon dioxide and methane, accounting for 18% of global greenhouse gas emissions, hundreds of times the emissions of farmed insects. In terms of environmental friendliness, farming insects is far greener than animal husbandry, but how do we go about raising insects well? There are still many challenges in the breeding process.

 

Insects are the largest group of organisms on earth, accounting for more than 80% of all animal species. Despite being valuable assets that nature has given to mankind, we have yet to tap into the potential of insects. In terms of nutrition and sustainability, insects make an excellent choice in the fight to ensure global food security. However, only by reducing the environmental burden caused by excessive human demands and beginning to coexist more harmoniously with nature do we have a chance of surviving the dual crises of food security and climate change.

未來糧食之路 可食昆蟲替代肉類

養豬、養牛會產生大量的二氧化碳和甲烷,佔全球溫室氣體總排放量的18%。是養殖昆蟲排放量的數百倍。對環境友善來說,養殖昆蟲比畜牧更為友善,但如何將昆蟲養得好?在飼養的過程中仍有許多挑戰。

昆蟲是地球上最大的生物類群,占動物種類的80%以上,是大自然給人類豐富的寶貴資產,但現今仍缺少開發。儘管營養和可持續性的特質使食蟲被視為保障全球糧食安全的選擇之一,然而,唯有減少因人類過度需求而造成的環境負擔,才能夠在糧食安全及氣候變遷的雙重危機下,讓人類與自然能永續共存。
