While previously, famines and other reasons causing shortage of food compelled people to include edible insects in their diet, today, these insects are being consumed owing to their nutritious properties. Transparency Market Research (TMR) in its latest report, studies the global edible insects market. The report is titled "Edible Insects Market - Global Industry Size, Market Share, Trends, Analysis, and Forecast 2016 - 2024Top of Form." Edible insects are not just being consumed by humans but are also being used as animal feed, and this is expected to drive the global edible insects market in the forecast period. Some of the edible insects that are expected to remain in demand are bees, ants, flies, wasps, scale insects, cockroaches, termites, beetles, crickets, and grasshoppers. These insects are rich sources of nutrition and used in poultry.
