Edible Thai Silkworm larvaes
Silk worm pupaes are used to make beautiful Thai silk garments, and they are edible too. The silkworm is the larva or caterpillar of Bombyx mori (Latin: "silkworm of the mulberry tree"), the domesticated silkmoth. It is entirely dependent on humans for its reproduction and no longer occurs naturally in the wild. Also, as well as being a tasty snack, silkworms are a source of traditional Chinese medicine. Silkworm pupae can be eaten whole straight out of the bag. Silkworms are high in protein, low in fat and a great source of essential fatty acids. Ingredients: Silkworms, natural favouring. No preservatives or colours added.
