Description du sujet. Du fait de l'augmentation actuelle de la demande en aliments carnes, il devient necessaire de diversifier les sources de proteines en considerant, par exemple, celles provenant des insectes. Litterature. Les criquets representent une part importante des insectes consommes dans le monde. Diverses etudes s'interessent a la composition nutritive, minerale et en vitamines, ainsi qu'aux profils en acides amines et en acides gras de certaines especes de criquets et suggerent que…

Acceso económico al insecto comestible Sphenarium Purpurascensen la Sierra Sur de Oaxaca, México.
espanolFundamentos: La ingesta del insecto Sphenarium Purpurascens Charpentier (SPC) prevalece en Oaxaca, pero crece su acceso como mercancia. El objetivo del estudio fue evaluar el acceso economico
Insects as an alternative source of protein: a review of the potential use of grasshopper (Sphenarium purpurascens Ch.) as a food ingredient
TLDR
The data found reveal that S. purpurascens has higher protein content than some conventional sources of animal origin, with an important contribution of fats, carbohydrates, minerals and their amino acid profile, it complies with the FAO requirements.
A Review Work on How to Differentiate the Longhorn Grasshoppers Ruspolia differens and Ruspolia nitidula (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae)
TLDR
The present work systematically re-examines and re-organises characters of Ruspolia differens and R. nitidula with a main goal to harmonizing the various records where the two species are interchanged, misdiagnosed or incorrectly named, and sensitizing future workers to overcome the oversights.
Nutritional Composition of African Edible Acridians
TLDR
Although their nutrients vary from one species to another, depending on the stages of development and the habitat, edible Acridians can play an important role in the fight against malnutrition in Africa, if they are well exploited.
Nutritional composition and rearing potential of the meadow grasshopper (Chorthippus parallelus Zetterstedt)
TLDR
Rearing trials done during the study show that commercial rearing could be developed to produce sufficient biomass for sustaining human consumption and preliminary toxicity assessment indicates that these insects do not exhibit toxicity towards neutrophil cells (white blood cells).
AgricultureIsLife or how to facilitate innovation in agriculture through multi-disciplinary research
Over the past decades, human use of environmental resources has largely increased and thereby led to ecological and socio-economic concerns. Damage to land and water ecosystems, resource depletion,
Entomophagy: Nutritional, ecological, safety and legislation aspects.
TLDR
The nutritional and sustainable values of edible insects are summarized, the safety and legislative measures are looked at, and future issues are discussed.
Schistocerca piceifrons piceifrons (Orthoptera: Acrididae) as a Source of Compounds of Biotechnological and Nutritional Interest
TLDR
The results suggest this pest species is a potential source of bioactive compounds of biotechnological interest for use by pharmaceutical and food industries.
Insect fatty acids: A comparison of lipids from three Orthopterans and Tenebrio molitor L. larvae
TLDR
The nutritional parameters including polyunsaturated to saturated and omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acid ratios of these insect lipids are also being discussed to understand the potential role of these lipids in human nutrition.
Gradual Provision of Live Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens) Larvae to Older Laying Hens: Effect on Production Performance, Egg Quality, Feather Condition and Behavior
TLDR
Investigating effects of dispensing live H. illucens larvae to non-beak trimmed older laying hens on production performance, behavior and welfare found that larvae provision influenced the number of birds on floor during morning and afternoon hours and could provide a possible solution to reduce feather pecking in hens.

Nutritional composition and safety aspects of edible insects.
TLDR
Although the data were subject to a large variation, it could be concluded that many edible insects provide satisfactorily with energy and protein, meet amino acid requirements for humans, are high in MUFA and/or PUFA, and rich in several micronutrients.
Nutritional Value of Edible Insects from the State of Oaxaca, Mexico
TLDR
Seventy-eight species of edible insects, representing twenty-three families from the state of Oaxaca in Mexico, were analyzed for nutrient composition, finding Hymenoptera (ants, bees, and wasps) are preferred for consumption.
