Chemical proximal, vitamins and inorganic nutriments analysis of edible insects in the State of Hidalgo, Mexico Analisis quimico proximal, vitaminas y nutrimentos inorganicos de insectos consumidos en el estado de Hidalgo, Mexico



Folia Entomologica Mexicana. abril; 411: 15-29



The chemical proximal, vitamins and inorganic nutriments were determined in 73 species of edible insects, gathered in the Hidalgo State. Wasps of the genus Mischocyttarus sp. had the highest protein percentage of protein (75 g/100g), while the lowest percentage belong to ants Myrmecosistus melliger (9.5 g/100g). Thasus gigas presented the major proportion of essential amino acids (54.54%). The values obtained of these aminoacids were compared with the FAO/WHO/UNU pattern (1985) that shows the requirements in indispensable aminoacids for children and adults. Chemical score was also reported. Magnesium achieved the highest quantity of the inorganic nutriments analyzed. Niacin was the vitamin most abundant. Energy content per 100 g goes from 1227.25 to 2 890.30 kJ.
