Maggot ice cream touted as eco-friendly alternative to traditional dairy-made treat.
The manufacturer points out that the larvae is sustainable to farm while producing a lot of protein, fat and minerals.

Raspberry ripple, chocolate chip or maggot?

Fans of the sweet treat could soon find grubs up in their cornet with the fly larvae being touted as a high-protein and sustainable alternative to the traditional dairy-made frozen product.

While interest has been growing in insects as a more eco-friendly food source in the West, a South African food maker has gone a step further and used maggots harvested from flies as a basis for ice cream.

Operating out of the Cape Town University of Technology, Gourmet Grubb processes the larvae of black soldier flies with other natural ingredients before mixing with flavours such as cocoa and honey in an ice cream-making machine.

Leah Bessa, head of product development at Gourmet Grubb, said: "Insects are typically environmentally friendly and sustainable to farm because they use very little land, water and food to grow on. They aren't at risk of climate change because you can grow them in a controlled environment, sort of an enclosed area. So you don't have the effects of drought and all those other things that are associated with climate change.


"And what's really great is that they produce a lot of protein and fat and minerals, by growing on what would typically be considered a waste product."

Many, many moons ago, when I was a wannabe Biggles and before I became more of a Grounded Rumpole, I went on a rather curious "downed aircrew" course presided over by some bloke who had been one of Lt. Col. David Stirling's LRDG, later SAS (Nicko will known what I'm talking about) nutcases.

I seem to recall him regaling us with the culinary delights and nutritional value of maggots in the unfortunate even of our aircraft becoming a bit of a bent groundcraft.........

Thanks be to God and the Archangel Michael, I never had to make a landing - crash or otherwise - at anywhere more exotic and maggot prone than Lindholme in Lincolnshire......

That's OK, Eddie. I'm just about to cook Basmati rice and Jalfrezi chicken.............surprising how much like rice grains maggots look after a trip to the frying pan.
