Insect Ice cream – would you try it?

Insect Ice cream – would you try it?

 

Gourmet Grubb is a Cape Town-based business that has made international headlines for producing ice-cream made out of insect milk. The name EntoMilk™  comes from the term entomophagy, which is the practice of eating insects. The milk is made from sustainably farmed insects, specifically Black Soldier Fly Larvae. Needless to say, this is considered to be significantly more environmentally friendly than the traditional farming of dairy cows. We chat to the product developer, Leah Bessa.
