    Author(s): Mohsin Raza and Jharna Chakravorty*

    A new global interest in entomophagy, the practice of eating insects with low ecological impact, has historically been used by humans for food or medicinal use. It is not only healthier; it is also the product of a generation of harmonious co-existence between tribes and environmental resources and human insect interaction that, most of the time, is little known. Although the nutritional value of edible insects is widely recognized and insects have therapeutic value, few studies have been focused on the antioxidant potential of edible insect extracts. The present study was undertaken to analysis of antioxidants parameter: ABTS (2,2′?azino?bis 3?ethylbenzothiazoline?6? sulfonic acid radical cation), DPPH (2,2?di(4?tert?octylphenyl)?1?picrylhydrazyl radical), Ferric Reducing-Power (FRP), Total Antioxidant Activity (TAC) and also to establish the possible correlations bet..
