Abstract

Insects have been being used as a part of human diet among many indigenous people in Assam, India from long before. The human population is likely to grow from six billion in 2000 to nine billion in 2050. In near future, there would be great scarcity of sources of animal proteins and then people have to search for alternative source of the protein. The insects can solve the problem of protein food requirement of humans as most suitable food since insect diet increase the food convertibility and caloric and nutritive values. The Protein, the growth factor of the body, is essential for the sustenance of life. The proportion of protein per 100g fresh body weight of various insect species compares favourably. On chemical analysis it was observed that Orthopteran insects are nutritious in terms of protein (8.2–24.6 gm/100g fresh weight), which is the main growth factor of life. The paper highlights rich content of animal protein of Orthopteran insect species. The results suggest the Orthopteran insect biomass as an alternative protein rich feed component in the feed of fish and other livestock.
