Parasitic worm eggs may soon go on sale in Europe.
That may sound horrible to people but the tiny worms found in intestines can apparently be good for you – reducing stomach pain and diarrhoea.
New Scientist reports that the Thai company ‘Tanawisa’ has had a pig whipworm product accepted for evaluation in Germany.
It’s the closest a product of its type has ever come to getting approved by the Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety.
If the company convinces German authorities of its health benefits, then the eggs could soon be on shelves in the country in 500, 1,000 and 2,500 packs.
And after that Tanawisa hopes to move on to the rest of Europe.
