WHATS FOR LUNCH?
What comes to your mind when you see someone eating Mopane Worms locally known as ifishimu/ifinkubala (Bemba), or Vinkubala (Chinyanja)?
While others may enjoy munching on this nutritious and tasty insect, others may cringe at the sight of it. One thing for sure is that Vinkubala is a great source of essential proteins, fats and minerals.
Studies by Mail and Gurdian (South Africa), reviews that Mopane worms contain more than 60% protein, 16,7% crude fat and 10,7% minerals.
Ifishimu/Ifinkubala competes effectively with a portion of meat or fish in terms of nutritional value.
The Mopane worm is a relatively cheap and readily available source of protein.
