COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Nov. 28 (UPI) — Honey bee brood — a combination eggs, larvae and pupae — is considered a delicacy in Mexico, Thailand, Australia and elsewhere. In a new study, scientist considered the potential of honey bee brood as a staple food and source of protein for the planet’s ballooning population.The obvious advantage of bee brood is its nutritional efficiency. It compares favorably to beef in terms of protein quantity and quality, but its production requires only a fraction of the space and energy.
This assumes honey bees are going to survive. And why aren’t we addressing the “ballooning population”?
