Insects in Food
in leviticus 11:41, we are told, “and every swarming thing that swarms upon the earth is a detestable thing; it shall not be eaten.”
any food known to be subject to insect infestation, therefore, cannot be eaten until the insects have been removed.
so, there’s a prohibition against eating insects.
now, more and more processed food has added insects or part of insects in them — and you can read in the newspapers that we should eat insects, they claim insects being nuitricious.
if i got the rabbis right we also should check food bevor preparing it.
how do i avoid insects in my food — or is it allowed to eat food that contains a small amount of insects?
