Insects are more nutrient-dense than a lot of the other protein sources we consume: on a per-weight basis, they have more protein and fibre than many meat products. If cultivated in the right way, they can be far more environmentally sustainable [than meat]. Outside of the US and Europe, insect consumption is common: they are regularly eaten by about two billion people.
Each of our bodies contains trillions of microorganisms.
The majority of these reside in our gastrointestinal tract and, within any given individual, there are hundreds of species carrying out all kinds of activities. My colleague Valerie Stull has been studying insect consumption, and my area of interest is the influence of diet on the gut microbiota. We wanted to see if there were any benefits to consuming insects beyond their nutritive value.
They were eating those meals for two weeks, had a two-week rest period where they went back to their normal diets, and then they switched groups and ate the other meals for two weeks.
We collected stool and blood samples to look at the outcomes. There were increases in what would be considered certain beneficial bacteria and a reduction in inflammation in the bodies of people who consumed crickets. We saw an increase in Bifidobacterium , one of the first microorganisms that colonises the gut of babies.
It helps infants gain more nutrients from their diets, aids with development of the immune system, and protects them from pathogen infections. Small amounts of acute inflammation are necessary for fighting off infections, but high levels — often a side effect of consuming a Western diet — can lead to conditions like diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Reducing inflammation can benefit long-term health outcomes.
