According to the Rachel Ray Show on Friday, February 15, 2013, Dr. Travis said the FDA allows up to 20 maggots in processed mushroom soup.

Of course, Rachel Ray gagged and shook her head at the thought.

What other crawling creepers are allowed in processed foods in U.S. grocery stores by the FDA?

So you think eating a few maggots with your soup is going to kill you, Maria? Sounds like a good source of protein to me. Wink Grin

That is exactly what Dr. Travis said, PeterTheAleut.

In Egypt and in the Middle East, humans enjoy a delicacy consisting of chocolate-covered swollen ant abdomens filled with honey. These ants are called repletes, and are living storehouses of nutrients for other ants.

My dad purchased these and another delicacy, chocolate-covered grubs similar to June Beetle grubs.

They were delicious. Yes, I ate several.

Anyone for some Kentucky Fried Cockroach?


Ah, that reminds me.

I went to a Family Life Conference many years ago, and sitting across me at brunch was a priest. I was talking to my husband, was ravenously hungry, and did not look at the food as I shoveled it into my mouth. Big mistake. As I bit into some stirred fried veggies, my tongue detected something long, skinny and sharp, and I quickly determined that it was cockroach. Putting my napkin over my face so as not to disturb the other guests, I quickly pulled it out of my mouth, which was no easy task as it was two inches long, and then I quickly went over to the banquet buffet, noticed some more cooked cockroaches (one to two inches long), and pointed them out to the waiter. The priest was impressed at my calmness, as he saw me put the beastie into my mouth, and wondered how I would handle it. He could not say anything to warn me because his mouth was full at that time. Father said that had another parishioner bitten into that cockroach, they would most likely have screamed. However, I did receive an A in entomology in college.

The restaurant offered me a free breakfast, but I declined. I lost my appetite for two weeks, but also lost 12 stubborn pounds. Smiley

Eh, not really. People eat nasty things like that all over the world and they are just fine. I think it is more of a psychological issue than anything else; the thought of eating insects or maggots/larvae is scary to us. But I bet that if we gave it a chance and did not know what we were eating, many of us would actually think it tasted pretty good. I'd rather just not know what I am eating, to avoid this awkwardness.

For some reason, the image of Chevy Chase eating "lamb fries" (i.e., fried ram testicles) comes to mind. Tongue

James, you remind me of my younger brother!
He was always seeing if he could make me nauseated so that he could get an extra piece of pie ... mine.

Anyway, that was a horrible video.

And yes, the FDA does allow 20 maggots per can of mushroom soup.
I am certainly not going to buy canned mushroom soup anytime soon.

I use a special vegetable wash to wash all critters from my veggies. It seems to work fine. In the rinse water, I may see some critters, which are dumped outside, but I have never seen insects floating in my soup.

On the other hand, brussel sprouts are known for harboring aphids, which burrow into the center. Washing the brussel sprouts does not dislodge them. Thus, I usually cut those veggies in half to check for aphids. Once I found at least four to five aphids per head or more, so I returned them to the store. The aphids had eaten most of the insides and left a mess of fecal matter. It was disgusting.

News to me.  Repletes is definitely not an Arabic word.

A replete is a word used in entomology to describe the worker ant that stores honey in its abdomen for the hive to use. People harvest these repletes by detaching the abdomen from the ant, and then dipping it into chocolate. It tastes much like a honey filled rice crispy. They are delicious and sweet.

Funny, the former king of Saudi Arabic gifted these delicacies to my dad when he visited that country as part of a scientific delegation from the USA. The boxes of chocolate were inscribed in Arabic.

Regarding grasshoppers and locusts:

A metabolic change occurs when conditions are ripe which triggers simple grasshoppers to change into large locusts which can form into huge clouds and migrate causing much damage to agricultural crops.

It is said that St. John the Forerunner fasted on honey and locusts.
However, some guy here on OC.net said that it was not really locusts but the locust tree fruit.

What do the Church Fathers have to say?

Pigs' feet

Garlic

Various chili powders

Usually these fundamental elements, with its own unique ingredients and elements depending on the household that makes it. It varies from person to person--but these are the fundamentals.

This article will tell you all you want to know on the subject - maybe more.

And for those who want to have a ready reference at hand, as they eat, as to just what the maximum amount of detritus might be that they are consuming, the FDA booklet can be had for free by writing to:

Industry Activities Staff (HFS-565)
Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition
FDA
5100 Paint Branch Parkway
College Park, MD 20740-3835

and asking for a copy of "The Food Defect Action Levels: Levels of Natural or Unavoidable Defects in Foods That Present No Health Hazards for Humans". It is requested that one include a self-addressed mailing label with the request.

You can also print it from here

Many years,

Of course not, insects are invertebrates, and thus very edible items for Great Lent.

Snails are also invertebrates as are shrimp (insects of the sea).

Of course not, insects are invertebrates, and thus very edible items for Great Lent.

Snails are also invertebrates as are shrimp (insects of the sea).

So is lobster and crab Wink
