Your Next Burger May Be Ground-Up Mealworms
Imagine walking into your local burger joint. You're in the mood for a nice, juicy burger. You look at the menu to see what you want - and there's only one choice there - a good old mealworm burger. Wait - what? As disgusting as that sounds - it might become the wave of the future. Researchers in the Netherlands say that mealworms may one day dominate grocery store shelves and restaurant fridges as a more sustainable alternative to traditional proteins, like pork, chicken and beef.
