Jellyfish chips will be on menus by 2050 as the human diet changes, report ...

People could be tucking into jellyfish chips and burgers made out of crickets in decades to come, according to a report on food.

It suggests that by 2050, British people will be 'growing their own meat' at home and in as little as six years we'll be eating insects like crickets and grasshoppers.

The Future of Food Report portrays long-term analyses of food and agricultural systems within the social and economy-wide context.

It also proposes that instead of serving standard fish and chips, takeaways will be serving tucking into banana blossom and chips made out of jellyfish.

We could be tucking into jellyfish chips in as little as 30 years, according to a report into 'foods of the future'. Bosses at Sainsbury's reckon Brits will even be 'growing their own meat' at home in special kits much like we make home-brewed beer

Banana blossom is the 'tear-shaped' flowers at the end of clusters of bananas - and when battered and fried they have a similar colour and texture to fish.

The report claims: 'In 30 years, jellyfish and other invasive species could be found on the fish counter as recent research has found them to be full of nutrients and vitamins.  

'Jellyfish are typically regarded as a last-resort food source but the growing interest of researchers and seafood chefs is triggering a rethink. 

'A team of Danish researchers, for example, has devised a method to turn jellyfish, which are rich in nutrients, including vitamin B12, magnesium, and iron, and low in calories, into crunchy chips in just a few days.'

By 2025, according to the paper, we'll be eating seaweed caviar and algae milk - as well as more mushroom-based products. 

By 2169, we'll be using research from 'space farms' on Mars and the Moon by robots, farmed by AgBots, to transform the world's deserts into food-producing land.

As well as what food we eat, the report claims that by this year, we will also have drastically changed how we eat.

People will be fitted with microchips to determine what foods they need to eat to stay healthy and be fed through 'skin patches', keeping them topped up with nutrients and vitamins. 

'By 2169, the revival of deserts, coupled with carbon-neutral logistics, means that we may well be eating vegetables and produce from areas that were once unthinkable as agricultural or arable land.

'But it is perhaps these sustainable desert greening methods, together with the emergence of autonomous farming that will open up the possibilities to transform impossible environments here on Earth, rather than on Mars or the Moon. 

'Retailers, such as Sainsbury's could play a critical role
