Try insect-based food if you dare!

Gent

  • Wetenschapsmarkt

Acceptance of insects as food is low in the West due to sensory appeal, unfamiliarity, low availability, high price and poor image. However, it could increase if the visibility of insects decreases, if products are appealing and if consumers are familiar with the food product. At the Food Science and Technology Group we are trying different ways to include insects in common food products to increase palatability and consumer acceptance. Come to visit us and try an insect-based food if you dare!

This activity is part of the Wooow Science Festival in Ghent. The full program can be found on www.wooowfestival.be
