Insect based food refers to the insect species which are being consumed by human as a whole or in the form of processed food like snacks, pasta, and burger patties. The process of eating the insects by animals or humans is known as entomophagy. Our teenagers or the young generation loves to eat sushi that is pure insect-based. Insect based food contains high protein, minerals, vitamins, and less carbohydrates, and it helps them to be healthy. One of the main reasons is insects contain more protein, but if they eat in processed form, insects are not visible, and they can easily consume and enjoy the high protein food.

Demand for insect-based food is increasing because consumers are getting aware of the benefits of eating insect-based food as people want to eat healthy food only, which contains more protein. As in few countries, people eat insects directly, but in some countries, they cannot consume it directly so, manufacturers are providing in the form of powder, roasted, and dried in edible insect food. It is low in calories and contain high protein. The case of the disease in livestock is increasing, so people want safe edible insect-based food. With the increase in population, consumers are more interested in eating animal protein such as chicken meat, pork, and beef, and which has increased the demand for insect-based food.

This industry will flourish as it is related to the health care products, but the high prices of insect-based food can hamper the sale. So, manufacturers have to undergo some innovation so that they can meet the demand of the customer. The insect-based food market is bifurcated based on applications such as Food & Beverage Industry, Animal Nutrition, and Pharmaceutical. It is used in food & beverage to induce protein, mineral, vitamin, and healthy fat in the human body in the forms of the protein snack bar, whey protein, insect snacks, cricket pasta, worm cookies, and many more.

The demand for insect-based food products is more by health-conscious people as they are more inclined towards fitness, gym, and workouts.

The type of insects used in insect-based products are cricket, ants, grasshopper, beetles, buffalo worms, and insect-based food products are produced in the form of powder, oil, or as a whole and many more. In countries like Europe and North America, the consumption of insect-based food low because of the stereotype thinking of the people and their culture, which is taking them back not to consume insect-based products.
