Is it safe to eat alive maggots? I heated up my rice before consumption and after 8 minutes of eating rice, I finally noticed that there were maggots in it. I don’t know how many. I was eating and saw one and right after I threw the rice away.

At University (back in Cuba) the rice was served with maggots. It was around 1992_1997. A friend if mine waited for me to finish picking out the maggots and then asked “aren’t you going to eat them?”. When I said “no” he took them while saying : these are today’s protein … I will eat them.

I fully understood the lesson and never ever picked the maggots out of my rice while studying there.

Thanks Mijail for the lesson. I guess there in Barcelona where you live now you don’t need that extra source of proteins
