Insects are nutrient packed food resources for mankind and livestock. Food profile of Four (4) insects belonging to the Order; Lepidoptera (Cirina forda Westwood), Blattodea (Periplanata americana L), Coleoptera (Rhynchophorus phoenicis F) and Orthoptera (Zonocerus variegatus L) were analyzed according to standard measures and the results obtained showed that C. forda had the highest protein content (74.56%). The protein content of Z. variegatus was 69.52% while P. americana had 70.58% and the… Expand
