A BetaBreak edition on insects as a food source will be held on Tuesday, May 23 at noon.

Feeding 9 billion people with sustainable and healthy food. How! An often proposed solution is to use insects as an alternative food source. Considering they are a sustainable and healthy protein option. Although more than 2 billion people worldwide eat insects, many of us don't quite see this as a viable option....

The next Beta Break edition will delve into the interdisciplinary topic of edible insects. Experts on insects: Prof. Arnold van Huis, Dr. Daylan Tzompa-Sosa and Dr. Jonas House will discuss why eating insects is good, why we still don't do it and how can we change that. If you want to try it for yourself, stop by for the free Bug Banquet, which includes crunchy crickets, meal worm power bars and larval bolognese.
