Spain began to sell snacks from insects

One wrong move and you’re chewing on a cockroach, washing it down with milk.

The next time you go to Spain, carefully read the product packaging in supermarket chain Carrefour.

It was there that he started to sell chocolate bars, snacks, pasta, Breakfast cereals and other snacks made from insects.

Just for the brave: @CarrefourES has started selling a new organic food range made with insects. Comprised by 10 items all sourced in Europe, this range offers a sustainable and environmentally friendly option to shoppers that includes items such as snacks, pasta and energy bars.

By the way, the use of insects in food products in Europe is considered innovative and “inspiring.” The European Union in 2018, made insects in the catalogue under the label “a new type of food” and the food and agriculture organization of the UN called them “food of the future”. In Spain itself, such products were allowed to sell from 1 January 2018.

Posters in supermarkets across the country offer “dare to try insects”.

According to the newspaper La Vanguardia, all meals from insects are made in Europe with strict quality control.
