Crickets are a healthy protein alternative.

69% Protein

Crickets are a clean source of complete and digestible protein. Packed with about 69% of quality protein, crickets are perfect to support our metabolism, help our body recover, keep our muscles healthy, satisfy our appetite and assist with weight control.

All Essential Aminoacids

Crickets have all the 9 essential amino acids that our body can’t make. It means we must get them from the food we eat every day. Crickets are a complete and delicious source of protein to support everything we do each and everyday!

Omega 3

Crickets are packed with Omega 3 fatty acids and they have the perfect Omega 6:3 ratio of 3:1 while the ratio for cattle is 1:20. Crickets are just perfect!

Iron

We absorb iron from animal products better than iron from plant products. Did you know that crickets have 2 times more iron than spinach?

B12 Vitamin

When we think about B12 we also think about the most popular food source for this vitamin: salmon. But did you know that crickets have 12 times more vitamin B12 than salmon? Insects are packed with vitamins!

Calcium

Crickets have as much calcium as milk and can also help supporting weight management, as they are very low in fat! Crickets are the perfect non-dairy source of calcium!

Much more protein than any traditional sources.

More than a quarter of the World’s population is already eating insects.

Crickets are the most sustainable protein on Earth.

Edible insects can have economic and environmental advantages over more traditional livestock sources of protein. Crickets require less land, water, feed and energy than traditional protein sources such as cattle, chicken and pigs.

Greenhouse gases

Livestock production is responsible for 18% of greenhouse gas emissions. It’s a higher share than the transport sector! Crickets on the other hand produce 80 times less methane than cattle.

More efficient

Crickets are 12 times more efficient in converting feed to meat than cattle, 4 times more efficient than pigs, and 2 times more efficient than chicken.

If a family of four ate one meal
a week using insect protein,

it would save the Earth 650,000 litres of fresh water over one year.

Crickets require less water than beef
to produce the same amount of protein.

Good for you,
good for our Planet

Bugs need far less agricultural land, a lot less water and a lot less valuable feed than conventional meat animals. They could even be fed on agricultural waste.

In a number of instances, they’re even better than normal meat.” Ounce for ounce, crickets provide more than twice the protein of beef. Plus, that protein is the best kind, containing all nine essential amino acids.

We’re eating them every day and we have no idea we’re doing it. “Everybody’s tried insects before and if you’re vegetarian or vegan you’ve actually tried more insects than most people”.
