First bite: Soft serve ice cream with mealworm topping debuts in Sweden
02/03/2023 // Ramon Tomey // Views

As the globalists continue their push to normalize insect consumption, soft serve ice cream topped with mealworms (Tenebrio molitor) debuted in Sweden.

The "environmentally friendly" food item debuted in the city of Sodertalje, located southwest of the capital Stockholm, during its Science Week held Feb. 1 to Feb. 3. Several companies under the European Union's MatLust project joined the three-day event at the Sodertalje Science Park. MatLust ran both a testbed and an innovation program for startups that dabble in so-called "sustainable foods" in the city, according to the RAIR Foundation USA.

Startup company Tebrito tied up with local soft serve ice cream producer Francis and Francis to promote this food item.

Eva Helen, one of the organizers of Science Week, said: "Everyone who wants will have the opportunity to experience the tasty combination of crispy mealworms and delicious [soft serve] ice cream. This is a way to draw attention to new types of food and highlight that we need to think innovatively about food."

MatLust project manager Sara Seing commented: "We are at the forefront in Sodertalje and have a unique test bed for innovative companies where we are open to new innovations and collaborations."

Tebrito, which is under MatLust, has also delved into the production of insect stuffing and insect flour. Rival startup Larry & Friends, meanwhile, counts mealworm mince as one of the products it is currently developing.

The globalist World Economic Forum (WEF) and its partners have been endorsing the consumption of insects in a bid "to reduce the climate footprint." They claim that insects such as mealworms and crickets (Acheta domesticus) contain more protein than livestock and poultry at the fraction of the emissions typically produced by traditional animal husbandry.

EU authorities green-light insects as food additives

The debut of the soft serve ice cream with mealworms came amid EU authorities approving the use of insects as ingredients in food.

On Jan. 6, the European Commission (EC) approved partially de-fatted and powdered A. domesticus as an ingredient for food items. The approval was in response to a 2019 application filed by the Vietnam-based insect protein company Cricket One.

Under the approval, cricket powder can now be added in the following food items: pizzas, pasta-based products, nuts and oilseeds, snacks and sauces, meat preparations and soups, multigrain bread and rolls, crackers and bread sticks, cereal bars, dry premixes for baked products, biscuits and processed potato products, legume- and vegetable-based dishes, whey powder, maize flour-based snacks, beer-like beverages and chocolate confectionery.

The European Food Safety Agency – in charge of food-related rules for the bloc – also approved the production process for cricket powder. It begins with a 24-hour fasting period for the crickets followed by freezing, washing and thermal processing. Secondary processing to remove oils and grinding is done after the initial steps.

The EC also approved on Jan. 6 the use of the lesser mealworm (Alphitobius diaperinus) larvae as a food ingredient in frozen, paste, dried and powdered form.

The new regulations regarding A. domesticus and A. diaperinus will take effect by the end of January. Food containing these insect products, however, will require appropriate labels. Some researchers believe these food items could cause reactions in consumers allergic to mollusks, crustaceans and dust mites.

The two insect preparations will join the list of insect foods approved by the EC – including T. molitor larvae and dried migratory locust (Locusta migratoria) powder. Moreover, eight other insect products are still being evaluated by the commission.
