Bread of Cucumbers in Finland a New Delicacy
One of the largest Finnish food producing companies has begun to sell something that says no one else has offered – an insect bread, bread of cucumbers.
According to the company, one cake contains about 70 dried domestic cucumbers, powdered and added in flour. These cages grown on a farm represent 3% of the total bread weight.
To improve taste, the bread is crispy, tasty and full of nutrients, and is an excellent source of protein as well as fatty acids, calcium, iron and vitamin B12 that contain insects.
Otherwise, Finnish laws were replaced on November 1st to allow the sale of insects as food.
For the time being, this bread will only be sold in the largest Finnish cities, as there are still insufficient quantities of cats from flour to be made available throughout the country.
Otherwise, in Switzerland, the Coop chain has begun to sell bugs made from insects in September, and similar products can be found in Belgium, England, Denmark and the Netherlands.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has promoted insects as a food source for humans because they are healthy and rich in proteins and minerals, and many types of insects produce less harmful gases for the environment and ammonia than most cattle, and require less land and money for cultivation.
