silkworm noodles in Chinese meals

VANCOUVER - Entrepreneur Matilda Ho is out to get silkworm noodles on the menu in China. 

The managing director of Shanghai-based startup incubator Bits and Bites was at the TED conference in Vancouver on Wednesday as part of a mission to promote sustainably-sourced food and healthful diets in a country of more than a billion people.

A startup about to bear fruit at the incubator is focused on making noodles from silkworm powder, which she described as a sustainable protein source that also happened to be a by-product of the textile industry.

"It is a fantastic ingredient," Ho said, adding that silkworm noodles have passed her personal taste test.
