Frogs to the fore

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - LIVING -

Frogs serve as a pro­tein source in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries, but in wealthy na­tions, frog legs have be­come a del­i­cacy. In­done­sia is the world's largest sup­plier of frog meat, ex­port­ing more than 5, 000 tonnes ev­ery year, mostly in France, Bel­gium and Lux­em­bourg. The grow­ing de­mand for frog legs has re­sulted in sharp de­cline in frog pop­u­la­tion. Will farmed frogs sat­isfy the global ap­petite for this ten­der, del­i­cate meat?
