Sorry, I wasn't trying to upset you, ThePHX. Just an intellectual excercise. I sincerely hope your day is not so terrible, I've had a few of those myself and wouldn't wish them on anyone.

nothing wrong with intellectual exercises :D Yesterday was quite bad..but hopefully everyday will be better than the last. Do you know how one would go about finding the nutritional content for insects?

There's very little you could do at home, other than anecdotal or possibly crude moisture content. To find out exactly what nutritional content your insects actually have is a somewhat expensive prospect, but can be done if you are seriously interested. You would want to consult a laboratory that does empirical testing (there are all kinds out there willing to just look in a book and give you what you already know above), something like the following site (no, this isn't a plug, I am in no way associated with the company):

You could also try contacting local educational institutions and see if they have a Food&Nutrition dept or a veterinary college with a nutrition program. They might be willing to take on a project like this.

Thats a realllyyy good point, and probably would be easier to get a hold of them than some big company eh?
