32. Development of products with a solid or liquid base based on insects (species tenebrio molitor).

Description

Population growth has raised world meat consumption in recent years and this growth is expected to continue to increase in the future.

Insect-based foods have proven to be a very favorable alternative for large-scale protein production thanks to the fact that they require fewer resources and their waste is practically non-existent, that is why at Tech Transfer Agrifood we look for new products based on insects in different formats.

Possible approaches

They are specifically looking for solutions that have been developed:

– “Semi-finished” products such as flour with a differential value with respect to vegetable proteins.

– Finished products (snack, drink, etc.) with or without a branding proposal.

 

Solutions not of interest

  • Products that contain organoleptic attributes unpleasant for the consumer.
  • Silver solutions from the need to apply EFSA accreditation through the NOVEL FOOD regulation.
