It sounds nice until you expect North Americans to actually eat it.  Louisiana tried and failed to make nutria appetizing despite them being mammals, which we've normalized eating.  Because it's an aquatic rodent.  Asian carp is tasty and prolific, however only select immigrant groups will munch on them because they are inconveniently bony.

People can find all kinds of reasons to be picky.  Turning it into a powder will not help the squeamishness of it still being insects.

Mash them into a paste and sell them at whole foods as a protein supplement. They'll buy em up.

Good buzzwords: Non-GMO, organic

Unless it is a single celled Monera, it's genetically modified
If it has carbon compounds, it's organic

The priests who made up te kosher animal rules were concerned with 2 things.

1. What animals were good to eat.
2. What animals were good to sacrifice.

The were mainly concerned about those that were both because they got to eat the sacrificed animals. Sacrificing a crow to God would be giving him a life but would be bad eating.

For mammals and birds the rules are quite elaborate but generally just exclude meat and carrion eaters.

The rules for seafood and insects are very cursory because they were never brought for sacrifice so who cares what they eat.

People did eat grasshoppers so out of all insects kosher exceptions were made for some species.

I doubt the rule making priests ever got up close to a grasshopper and ate it because they describe them as having four legs. They were brought much better things to eat.

Leviticus 11:21
But among the winged insects that walk on all fours you may eat those that have jointed legs above their feet, with which to leap on the ground.

I have some relatives (by marriage) from Morocco. Kosher to the max. They would tell me about picking locusts off car grills and frying them up.

Well, that's even less appetizing than the pizza that I showed in another thread.

Being powdered, the locusts can be slipped into some unwitting person's smoothie or other food item. Eventually, some will have an allergic reaction and go into anaphylactic shock.
