DailyDirt: Protein Is Protein...?

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Some foods are considered delicacies, but some edible stuff can be just strange or disgusting. It's actually a bit puzzling how some ingredients and dishes are created. Sure, some weird food items are simply the result of people eating something to avoid starvation, but not always. Here are a few more kinds of protein you might want to try to eat someday. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    I love how insects and snails are described as "sustainable". Everything is sustainable until it starts being used by big industries and harvested to extinction.

    Fish are a sustainable food source as long as we don't poison their environments, destroy their ecosystems, over-catch them until entire species are depleted and contaminate the remaining ones until they're barely safe to eat. Oops...

    I like the idea of actively using insects in human nutrition in general (a lot of people are already doing it). They are easier to raise in artificial environments and will suffer much less than higher vertebrates. I wouldn't give up my red meat beef from cows every once in a while though ;/
