You're healthy; you eat fruit and take the stairs (maybe). What else could you possibly need, right? Oh, turns out a lot. Thankfully, a lot of that elusive healthy stuff you aren't finding in your daily apple or trip to the 2nd floor can be found naturally in crickets.
Crickets: more than just a pretty face
Crickets are a complete and (dare I say) perfect protein packed with: sustainable protein, prebiotics, B12, iron, calcium, fiber, and amino acids.
Who knew? Quite a few people actually. Where have you been? 2.5 billion people around the world eat insects TODAY. Who knows, maybe even right now.
The production of whey and soy are responsible for massive amounts of pollution that go straight into our air, water, and land, causing biodiversity loss and degrading soil quality. You know, just to name a few.
Someone's gassy. And that someone is cows.
Cows produce 100x the Greenhouse gas emissions of crickets. Doesn't that stink?
Looks like they're thirsty, too.
It takes 2,000 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of beef, but only 1 gallon for crickets!
Wow, these hogs are real resource hogs.
(That joke would be so much better if we were actually talking about hogs right now.)
Cows eat 10 pounds of feed to produce 1 pound of meat. Crickets only eat 1.7 pounds!
If you’re panicking because you heard crickets taste like crickets, and you don’t know what crickets taste like, don't worry. To be honest, crickets don’t taste like much (we wish this were more dramatic).
Our cricket powder has a mild, earthy flavor similar to nuts or seeds. So mild in fact you'll be like "where is it?" as you finish off an entire bag of Chirps chips.
