Carbo loading on gnats?Crankist

Many summer nights I've ridden through veritable clouds of the these things that actually sting the face a bit, and smoosh up into helmet vent holes by the billions. Last time, caught unaware, I inhaled a mouthful of these nutritious little bastards and noticed that (...mmmmm...) they taste like strawberry seeds. Just how many grams of carbos are in a mouthful? Should I consider GCL a compliment to my sports drink or seperate meal? Will they damage tooth enamel at 20 mph? Would there be a market for them in bar form?
TIA,
M.

Personally I prefer flies and larger beetles for their high protein ratio. Either way, I think there's a market for bug based sports nutrition.
