Projecttitel: Borgen van de veiligheid van insectenProjectnummer: LWV19099 Missie: Gewaardeerd, gezond en veilig voedselMMIP: D4: Duurzame en veilige verwerkingLooptijd: 2020 – 2023 Projectleider: Nathan Meijer
Insects are seen as an alternative protein source for human food and animal feed. Since they can convert waste streams they also fit within the circular economy. However, before large scale production, possible safety aspects need to be controlled.
This project focuses on investigating the safety of insects for feed and food, when reared on waste streams. To this end, a series of transfer experiments will be done, with rearing insects on contaminated substrates.
