Its not a wasp anymore though, its been broken down into its constituent parts by enzymes produced by the fig. Any vegetable or fruit you eat will have taken nutrients from the soil and those nutrients get into the soil via the life cycle, so the nutrients in the soil used by an apple tree for example may have come from a dead animal that died, decayed and returned to the earth from whence it came. so technically the apple you eat from that tree has been created from death. Its all cyclical and unavoidable. The wasp that was inside a fig is no longer a wasp just as nutrients that came from a dead animal to fertilise an apple tree are not that animal anymore.
Cheaper than Aldi ! Happy days
Figs will not continue to ripen after they are picked like many other fruits , so when buying figs make sure they are soft to the touch then you know the fruit is ripe and will be sweet and delicious !
The crunchy bits are seeds, not wasp parts

I assume you don't eat meat...
Plus isn't it better to know what actually goes into your food. But, if you really did, you probably wouldn't eat sausages, most wine, cheese, some peanuts, and refined sugar. For example...

As long as they're better than the Morrisons ones! Dry as a bone.
If they did have a wasp in them, they'd have tasted better.

So it's not vegetarian then?

Sure it is. As covered, there's little difference between a wasp being broken down inside the fig, to animals etc. being broken down in the soil and the nurtients being taken up by the roots.

There is no dead wasp in a fig. A wasp will have died in the fig, and fed it as it matured - there is no wasp left.

If you're vegetarian, make sure you don't eat Californian almonds instead. Only have organic ones - which should come from Italy or Spain. Sainbsury's sell organic ones from Italy for only £2.30 for 200g, the cheapest I've seen anywhere.

Many vegetarians seem to unwittingly eat normal almonds (80% of the world's supply are Californian). They're pollinated with bees that are brought in en masse, and then sprayed - killing the bees. Arguably far worse than eating an actual animal.
There are probably plenty of vegans who do that, rather than eat for example organic eggs laid by happy chickens.

Interesting, cheers.

And absolutely fine.

Anyone concerned, just read the link.
I love figs! Quartered, stuffed with goat’s cheese and wrapped in Parma ham, then baked for about 10 mins. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Serve with salad. Yummy!!!!|

Just goes to show how a stupid,incorrect "fact" can influence people. NOT all figs will contain a wasp.Many figs grown for consumption will have been ripened WITHOUT pollination, ie NO WASP.

Besides, a fig wasp is about 1.5mm long and is completely broken down by the fig. Has anyone ever FOUND a wasp in a fig?

More incorrect info. True, they are pollinated with bees shiped around the country, (bad enough, granted.) but they don't then kill them. They are moved around and the people that own the bees invest a lot of time and money into their swarms, (if that's what they all called.)

Bees being given the equivalent of dementia or being killed by crop spraying is well documented.

If you're claiming that bees aren't harmed in non organic almond farming then you're wrong.

Edit: they're called colonies I believe
