“You Will Eat ze Bugs and Be Happy”: EU Authorizes Crickets for Consumption
Right on time for the latest confab of the global cabal in Davos, Switzerland, the European Union has authorized house crickets for general consumption effective Jan 24, 2023.
The announcement was hidden away in the “Official Journal of the European Union” regarding the “Union list of authorised novel foods” Jan 3. and little-noticed until now.
“On 24 July 2019, the company Cricket One Co. Ltd submitted an application to the Commission for an authorisation … to place Acheta domesticus (house cricket) partially defatted powder on the Union market as a novel food”, the Eurocrats wrote.
“In its scientific opinion, the (European Food Safety) Authority concluded that Acheta domesticus (house cricket) partially defatted powder is safe under the proposed conditions of use and use levels. Therefore, that scientific opinion gives sufficient grounds to establish that Acheta domesticus (house cricket) partially defatted powder when used in multigrain bread and rolls, crackers and breadsticks, cereal bars, dry pre-mixes for baked products, biscuits, dry stuffed and non-stuffed pasta-based products, sauces, processed potato products, legume- and vegetable- based dishes, pizza, pasta-based products, whey powder, meat analogues, soups and soup concentrates or powders, maize flour-based snacks, beer-like beverages, chocolate confectionary, nuts and oilseeds, snacks other than chips, and meat preparations, intended for the general population, fulfils the conditions for its placing on the market in accordance with Article 12(1) of Regulation (EU) 2015/2283.”
“Acheta domesticus (house cricket) partially defatted powder should be included in the Union list of novel foods set out in Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/2470. The Annex to Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/2470 should therefore be amended accordingly”, the Eurocrats decreed. “Only the company Cricket One Co. Ltd (10) is authorised to place on the market within the Union the novel food referred to in Article 1, for a period of 5 years from 24 January 2023.”
We hope Klaus Schwab will be serving snacks in Davos today.
