A teacher at a school in the south of England with a large Muslim population asked his class how many of them hated Britain. In an instant, 30 hands shot up. Houston, we have a problem.

The Insanity Moves Up Another Notch as EU Legalises Use of Crushed Insects in Foods

category international | consumer issues | news report author Wednesday January 18, 2023 22:20author by 1 of Indy Report this post to the editors

2023 - People will now eat insects without knowing it.

You read that right. The EU has done all the legal work to allow crushed and powdered insects -namely house Crickets to be mixed in with all sorts of food ingredients and a soon as next week, Jan 24th it can start being used in foods like breads, pastas, soups, meats, snacks, chocolates, beers and a whole host of products.

Much of this is all under the guise of saving the planet and eating less meat but it is nothing of the sort and is simply a plan to get the plebs to eat from the bottom of the food chain while the rich and powerful will continue to dine on steaks as the whiz from one conference to the next around the world in their private jets.

Read on for more and for a link to the EU legal documentation confirming these underhand changes

As of the new year 2023, the EU has given permission to add insects (house crickets) to baked goods, pasta and other semi-finished products "for the general public".

Although there is too little published knowledge about allergies and possible anaphylactic reactions, the EU Commission is of the opinion that no specific labeling requirements about possible allergic reactions need to be listed.

However, those who have allergies to crustaceans, molluscs and house dust mites are highly likely to also suffer allergic reactions when consuming products with house crickets added.

It can also lead to new allergic reactions to the substrate that is fed to the insects.

Therefore, there is only a labeling requirement if the product contains powder "Acheta domesticus".

This means that people have to find out for themselves that "Acheta domesticus" is ground into powder and added to house crickets and have to check for themselves whether they could be allergic to it.

Admission begins on January 24, 2023.

Responsible for the approval:

Ursula VON DER LEYEN

The following products "for the general public" will soon be on sale with added crickets (Acheta domesticus):

  • - Multigrain bread
  • - Multigrain rolls
  • - Crackers and breadsticks
  • - Cereal bars
  • - Dry premixes for baked goods
  • - Cookies
  • - dry filled and unfilled pasta products
  • - sauces
  • - processed potato products
  • - Dishes based on legumes and vegetables
  • - Pizza
  • - General pasta and whey powder products
  • - Meat analogues (vegetarian meat alternatives)
  • - Soups and soup concentrates, soup powder
  • - Cornmeal based snacks
  • - Beer-like beverages
  • - Chocolate products, nuts and oilseeds
  • - Snacks (except chips) and meat preparations
