Cicadas have very rich in protein, per 100 grams of cicadas, the protein content of up to 68 grams. Does this mean that people take cicadas can “make up” it? In fact, cicada pupa protein is sufficient and can not equate with the nutritional value, because the nutritional value of food protein depends mainly on its amino acid species, quantity and structure ratio. Although cicada pups contain a variety of amino acids, but does not include the human body necessary for tryptophan and methionine, which will greatly reduce the nutritional value of cicada pupa. In addition, cicadas contain iron, zinc, manganese and other essential minerals, but because of the high content of iron, iron and zinc ratio is not appropriate, a direct impact on the body’s absorption, and therefore can not be used as a supplementary mineral The main source of food. So, why do you eat cicadas? This is because the report of the “guy” on the cicadas allergy and not know. Cicadas contained in the protein, amino acids are macromolecules, are heterosexual protein, after ingestion can cause a large number of histamine into the blood, resulting in the body allergies.
