Grasshoppers have become well known for their high protein content, but they are also a good source of calcium. Grasshoppers are incredibly easy to catch and around the world, a market has developed to meet demand. Most farmers allow simple traps to be set up on their land as grasshoppers are seen as pests to their crops. There is even a grasshopper-based protein bar on the market. Typically, grasshoppers are sold by the pound and can be prepared pan-fried or oven roasted. Most who regularly eat grasshoppers remove the legs and wings before eating as they can be a bit annoying as well as these parts hold no real nutritional value.
