Thanks for your explanation.
I agree with your assumption that insects in their original form will not be a regular food on our tables, it will rather be an exotic experience. On the other hand, I think that in the near future it will very often start to appear in the food as a protein supplement.
Protein bars, drinks and other FIT and energetic foods.
According to my research, most people are willing to eat insects unless they see it in its original form.
As you write, the animal agriculture is not sustainable and the wealth of formerly poor societies is steadily rising, which is a way to a dead end. So returning to insect food in the form of a modern, “nice” and delicious diet is an possible alternative. We have to realize that even when we eat pork, we do not thinking about real pig, but we only enjoy the taste of meat.
I have to ask you about your first point. I am not understand to this numbers. How is it possible that animal feed is bigger market. All food is finaly made for human, so human food market must be bigger. The amount of human food should be smaller but logically greater in the price. If this numers are only USA, perhaps those figures distort the high exports of the animal food from USA.
