Cricket snacks can also be mass-produced

  Ethiopia’s staple food “Injera” has spread all over the world with the country’s diaspora, and it can be easily eaten in South Africa. This is a kind of soft pie crust with a special sour taste. It is placed on a large plate with colorful side dishes and condiments. When eating, tear off a piece of pie and put the side dishes in the mouth. and the slightly sour crust combine to form a unique flavor.
  The crust of “Injila” looks similar to pancakes. In 2018, I learned how to make it with the local people. The method is to spread the batter on a heated circular iron plate, so it can be said that “Injila” is a kind of Pancakes, except that the raw material of the batter is the unique crop “teff” in Esser.
  The teff crop is unique to Ethiopia. Among the main starchy food crops on the African continent, teff, sorghum and yam are ancient local products, while corn originated in the Americas, and it was not until the colonial period that it was widely planted and became the mainstream. The dough-like “Ugari” or “Sima” that is very common in African countries may have been made of sorghum or miscellaneous grains in earlier times, but now it is mostly corn flour.
  In supermarkets in South Africa, sorghum flour is still a very common commodity. Many of the popular fermented drink “Magu” also use sorghum as raw material, with different artificial flavors. In addition, teff and sorghum have also become choices for consumers with gluten allergies because they do not contain gluten protein.
  In order to cook “Injira”, a special iron stove is used, which can be said to be a kind of kitchen appliance unique to Esther. Household kitchen appliances started in the early 20th century. After the power system began to spread in the United States, toasters, electric stoves and coffee machines were quickly launched in Europe and the United States. However, other parts of the world have different food cultures and slower industrial development, such as East Asia. The rice cooker used to cook rice was successfully developed by a foundry of an electrical appliance brand in Japan in the 1950s and gradually became popular.
  The production of kitchen appliances in socialist countries involves different historical contexts. Whether in the Soviet Union or China, they are all guided by national policies. Ethiopia also began to design a new type of “Injira” grill during the socialist period from 1974 to 1987. furnace. The early models were all developed and promoted by government departments or national power companies. Most of the furnace bodies were made of concrete castings. Only now have many private enterprises launched various fashionable and exquisite products.
  With the evolution of economy and technology, traditional food in developing countries is being reshaped by modern industry. As far as food processing technology is concerned, from the development of food chemistry since the 19th century to today, scientists have been able to use artificial flavors to create ever-changing tastes, and even use carbon dioxide to directly synthesize starch. In theory, all food production can actually be turned into a mechanical process , and automated coding. However, at present, people are still more accustomed to the products of traditional farming and animal husbandry, which feel more natural and economical, but will this still be the case in the future?
  All over the world, new types of cooking machines have been emerging. Not only China has automatic cooking machines for home use, but also many home appliance manufacturers in India have launched products that can automatically make “Indian flying cakes”. Just add flour, oil, water and other raw materials to make cakes quickly. There are similar machines for “Bijrian rice” and “rice bean pancakes”. Most of these machines have AI learning functions, and can be connected to the Internet to add programs to make new dishes.
  In the catering industry and the production of food factories, the trend of automation is sweeping even faster. Middle Eastern shawarma restaurants that are common in Europe and the United States, in 2011, the promotion of automatic meat cutters unexpectedly exploded on social media; fried insect snacks, which are common among Thai folks, now have large-scale factories using automated production processes to make bags Cricket snacks, cricket energy bars, cricket cream, cricket powder and other commodities; southern African folk often eat emperor moth larvae, and consumers can already buy flour or bread paste made from caterpillars.
