Belgium pavilion explores edible insects at Expo


Milan, September 14 - The Belgium pavilion at Expo
offered a tasting of a pasta and a patè both made from
mealworms, following a press conference Monday on the breeding

"For years Italy has been on the front lines for the
introduction of insects into our diet. (It's) one of the most
valid solutions for feeding the planet of the future,"
Mascaretti said.
