Researchers measured the biomass output and feed conversion ratios of crickets (Acheta domesticus) that were reared on foods ranging from grain-based to high in cellulose. Crickets fed on processed food waste grew to harvestable size with conversion efficiency similar to industrial-scale production broiler chickens.
So... with just a few? years of industrial scale testing, they are as efficient as one of the highest min/max'd meats on the market? That we've spent decades grinding efficiency on? That sounds ready.
