I want to try some cooking with insects. So far I found no shop in my town selling insects for human consumption, and online shops I found (so far) where really expensive (10-40€/100g!).
So I'm thinking of buying some pet food insects (most likey cickets or grasshoppers). Are these safe for human consumption?
I'm in Germany, I assume regulations for pet food would apply to these insects (is this so?).
I'm mostly concerned about antibiotics and whatever harmful stuff they might get via their food.
