Global Steak: Demain nos enfants mangeront des criquets is a 2010 French documentary television film directed by Anthony Orliange.
The film explores the problem of human meat consumption and suggests that the increasing demand of meat in the world could lead to a catastrophe.
- Entomologist Séverin Tchibozo suggests the larvae of the rhinoceros beetle contain much protein (40%), more than chicken (20%) and beef (approximately 18%) and that larvae could become a protein source for a large [human] population.
- Professor Arnold van Huis at Wageningen University in Netherlands says that locust can produce 1 kg protein from 2 kg fodder compared to a cow needing 10 kg fodder to produce the same amount protein. Other benefits are that locust does not produce greenhouse gases and does not need antibiotics.
- Marian Peters of Bugs Organic Food talks of people's attitudes towards eating insects and suggests separating mealworms from their exoskeleton and repackaging them in the same manner as Surimi.
