Maggot Sausages and Insect Ice Cream (World Food Day Special)
CJ Sio & Zoey Chan, Life Origin
If eating insects grosses you out, you might want to know that creepy crawlies like the Black Soldier Fly could be the food of the future. With food crisis hitting many parts of the world and human demand outweighing supply, companies like Life Origin are working hard to find alternative food sources that are sustainable and easy to harvest. In conjunction with World Food Day 2019, we speak to CJ and Zoey, founders of Life Origin, about making insects palatable, the process of farming this new food source, as well as the business of selling them to a fairly averse market.
