As The EU Hides ‘Bug Additives’ In Pizza, Pasta And Cereal, We Are Reminded Yet Again Why We Need To Create Our Own Survival Foods – Part 2: Freeze Drying And Dehydrating Long Term Storage


    by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

    Did you know the people of the European Union are now being force-fed bugs and they don’t even know it? Stefan Stanford sent me a link to that little tidbit of news this morning. “Crushed bugs” are being turned into a food additive, which is then being used in pizzas, pastas and cereals all across the EU.

    Defatted house crickets are on the menu for Europeans across the continent, without the vast majority of them knowing it is now in their food.

    “This comes thanks to a European Commission ruling passed earlier this month,” reports RT.

    “As per the decision, which cited the scientific opinion of the European Food Safety Authority, the additive is safe to use in a whole range of products, including but not limited to cereal bars, biscuits, pizza, pasta-based products, and whey powder.”

    But don’t worry, because the crickets first have to be checked to make sure they “discard their bowel content” before being frozen.

    TRUTH LIVES on at

    We have already discussed and collectively seen the unprecedented rise in food prices, and the reports of mad scientists experimenting with adding mRNA vaccines to our vegetables during the growing process, along with the continued food shortages, as seen in recent images sent to us by ANP readers since the last food news piece, so this “bug additive” in the EU isn’t as surprising as it should be.

    No doubt they will be trying that here in the U.S. is short order once they have attempted to normalize the practice.

    All the aforementioned reasons above give us sufficient reason to learn to grow and store our own foods, as our ancestors did, and as the Amish still do today.

    In out last “create your own survival foods” piece I promised to get into dehydrating or freeze-drying foods giving them a long shelf life. Since then we have received a few emails with other DYI topics, which we will also address in this article.

    First, food news.

    FOOD NEWS…….

    As we have reported previously, along with other food shortages, canned goods have continued to be listed in the shortage category due to an issue obtaining aluminum. This is confirmed by a reader from North Carolina who sent over the image above.

    The message with that email stated “Attached were taken today at Dollar General In Wilkes County NC.  The manager said there was NO stock to add to the missing products. (So not an employee shortage issue) It has looked this way for 2 months or so.  Slowly dwindling down. 

    Love your page !  Feel free to use the photos in upcoming articles. The Medicine Isle looks pretty bad and has for months. Canned food area too. No $5 coupons printing on receipts for 2 weeks.”

    Below is the image of the medicine aisle our reader sent over to us.
