Pretty different compared to muscle meat or casein.

Very interesting. When I was researching other primates, I noticed that aside from fruit and vegetation, they primarily consumed insects as a protein source, while meats were rarely eaten except as a fall back food during times of the year when other foods were scarce.

Interesting, so predominantly glutamic acid. Similar to Chicken and chicken soup in that regard. Interesting profile that sort of proves the "anabolic properties" of insects. The micromineral content is even more interesting, though.

Now if we were talking black ants, this would be totally different; high Zinc and MASSIVE amounts of Protein.

Haha. That site and product line is very popular. They've been around forever too. I'm not sure I would enjoy the crunchiness of the Scorpions but to the black ants? HELL YES. Those are good!

100 g earthworm contains about 100 - 150 mg Zinc. But if those numbers are true they would also contain 1.000 or even 10.000 mg of iron what would be an iron overkill. If I interpret those numbers wrong please correct me!

Sadly they contain about 10 g of fat that is about 2g SFA (20%), 3g MUFA (30%) and 5g PUFA (50%). I wonder if low pufa insects exists.

That's a good question.
