Agro-industry: New food frontiers, edible insects bred with organic waste

The ENEA Trisaia Research Center (Matera) is experimenting with how to obtain new flours with high nutraceutical value from insects. A team of researchers, specialized in frontier research on the circular economy, has managed to "breed" an insect known as "flour moth" - the Tenebrio molitor"- with food and cereal waste, in order to obtain protein flours useful for animal feed production and new products for human consumption (novelfood).
