Make Edible Insects Part of the Daily Diet of North Americans


Edible Insects as a serious food source has been gaining acceptance across the United States, Canada and Europe in recent years. In today’s increased environmental and health conscious world, edible insects make sense to a lot of people. This trend will not slow down as our planet struggles to adapt to a 50% to 80% increase in food demand in less than 50 years. For the benefit of our children, we need solutions to our unsustainable livestock production systems. Edible insects is a natural answer.


Edible Insects are Healthy


Insects as a nutritional food source has been generally ignored by much of North America (Bravo Mexico!).  Yet, many edible insects have more protein than beef or salmon and include all of the essential amino acids (this and being rich in B12 makes them a great meat alternative for vegetarians). Edible insects are packed with very bio-available vitamins and minerals. Many have more iron than spinach and more calcium than milk and include substantial quantities of B12 and Omega 3. They are a prebiotic which are nutrients for probiotics.  Adding edible insects to our diet makes sense.


Edible Insects are an Environmentally Friendly and Humane Solution


During the past 50 years meat production has tripled and now accounts for nearly one-third of all arable land and one-third of the fresh water we use. Over the next fifty years demand for meat (specifically beef) will double or more. Our planet can not handle this growth. In contrast, insects can be grown vertically in rural or urban environments using a fraction of the land, water and feed needed for meat. They emit minimal greenhouse gasses and do not pollute our land and waterways with their waste (insect frass is a fertilizer). Insects can be grown humanely just about anywhere in the world by households, small farmers and large commercial interests. Edible insects are an environmentally friendly solution.


Greatest Food Revolution of Our Time


It’s not often that chefs have a whole new food group to experiment with. There are nearly 2000 edible insects and they all taste different. Vanguard chefs are discovering ways to use whole, chopped and powdered insects to astound patrons with dishes that range from shocking to delicious. Beyond being healthy, sustainable, environmentally friendly, humane and delicious, cooking with edible insects is fun and memorable. Nobody ever forgets when and where they ate their first scorpion.


The World Follows Trends Originating Here in North America


Entosense is introducing the edible insect experience that people the world over enjoy to restaurants and kitchen tables throughout North America. The world watches America and follows our lead. Making edible insects a trend here will benefit the world.


Insects are an ancient food source billions of people eat today and it’s virtually non-existent in our country. This doesn’t make sense. Logic holds that we should embrace insects as food. This is simply an unwarranted cultural fear. Adopting insects in to our diets is not only good for us personally, it is good for the whole planet.

The  History  of  Entosense

Maine Entosense

A Family Business Based in Maine

Thirteen year old Sam asked “Why don’t we eat bugs?”. After receiving a typical Dad answer, he continued to research edible insects and reported back about how billions of people do eat bugs every day, how healthy it was for us and how it was sustainable and a good move for the environment. He convinced his whole family that we should be eating bugs if we care about a healthy future.


By the time Sam is his Dad’s age, there will be half again as many people on our planet and meat production will need to double – which is not possible. Edible insects is one answer.


Recognizing how rare it is to have the opportunity to impact the world in such a way, Sam’s Dad (Bill Broadbent) and his Aunt (Susan Broadbent) decided to make major career changes and start a business that sold insects as food to North Americans. Outside of the family, many friends worried about the decision. It’s true, few things are reviled as much as bugs are in America. It’s either crazy or brave. The belief that enough people will see the numbers and believe straightforward facts drove them on. Edible insects are healthy, environmentally friendly, raised humanely and taste great.


Being based in Maine, everyone here has heard about the ascent of lobster from food so disgusting prisoners revolted over being fed it to the high priced delicacy it is today. Lobster are simply the bugs of the sea. Considering the benefits of insects, it’s only natural that they will follow in the path of their aquatic relatives.


In July of 2015, Entosense was incorporated in the state of Maine.


Beginning with only the brother and sister team working out of a barn, it has grown continuously.
Today, Entosense is located in the Roy Hill Mill in Lewiston, Maine and has a number of employees. Entosense has gone beyond eCommerce and now sells edible insects online and wholesale to retailers worldwide.


Entosense’s mission is to make edible insects part of the daily diet of North Americans.
