NACHO LOZANO, TELEMUNDO: The European Union is allowing two new insects fit for human consumption to go on sale between yesterday and today. They will come in the form of flour made in part with domestic crickets and meal larvae. Oh, that took them a very long time. Pre-Hispanic cultures already included these in the human diet. Well. Insects are a delicacy in many restaurants around the planet, because they have a high nutritional value and provide micronutrients that are necessary for our bodies- as pre-Hispanic cultures already knew. They are also a good source of energy, fat, protein or fiber, and best of all, they help preserve the environment. And I am a fan of insects… with a tortilla and a bit of salsa. Well. What can I say?
