Takeo Tokyo Edible Black Ants Canned insect food
The Japanese have a unique approach to food: almost nothing is beyond their . And so we shouldn’t be shocked that Takeo Tokyo has produced this can of Edible Black Ants. It can enjoyed just as it is or added to various other dishes, such as bread, pasta, pizza, salad, and rice. The ants come salted but retain their natural sweetness.
Don’t worry, the ants (originally from Thailand) are 100% dehydrated, so won’t even look too shocking when you open the can. What’s more, this isn’t just a “crazy food” gimmick. Black ants are said to be incredibly strong, capable of carrying masses a hundred times their own weight. As such, people consume black ants as a health food or part of Chinese medicine. Eating them can help relieve fatigue, adjust immunity levels, reduce joint pain and Lumbago, and prevent the onset of the signs of aging.
