“…In experiment 1, the raw insect samples investigated were first subjected to bacterial endospore counts and, as a comparison, total viable counts (Figure 1). The obtained values for total viable aerobic (between 7.5 and 8.7 log cfu/g) and anaerobic (7.4 to 8.7 log cfu/g) counts are similar to the typically high counts for raw edible insects reported earlier 2,15 . Additionally, the values for the aerobic and anaerobic counts are highly comparable.…”

“…For bacterial endospore counts, which represent the fraction of the total viable counts present as spore form significant variation was observed between samples from the same insect species, compared to the total viable counts. This variation may result from differences in (hygiene in) the rearing environment and/or feed, and is commonplace for insects 2,9,11 . Again, anaerobic and aerobic endospore counts displayed comparable trends (Figure 1).…”

“…A few years have passed since the EFSA recommendations and the available scientific literature has been enriched by numerous publications on the safety aspects of edible insects (Garofalo et al., ; Osimani et al., , ).…”

“…The currently available studies highlighted that, besides their high nutritional value, edible insects can also be a source of chemical and biological contaminants that must be carefully assessed and mitigated before consumption. Regarding microbiological hazards, insects can be vectors of several microbial species harbored by both their gut and external cuticle (Garofalo et al., ; Milanović et al., ).…”
