The name inago comes from Japan. People throughout Japan used to eat rice grasshoppers before World War II,
as it was a rich source of energy. It is eaten today as tsukudani (boiled in soy sauce and sugar and stir fried).
Because these insects are considered pests for rice farmers, we thought, why let them be killed and go to waste?
Rice grasshoppers are abundant in rice paddy fields and are extremely easy to catch without using pesticides. And moral
of the story: they’re highly nutritious, environmentally friendly, and delicious.
