It takes over one thousand house crickets (acheta domesticus) to produce 100 grams of our protein-rich cricket flour. One hundred percent natural, free from artificial colors, flavorings, preservatives, and MSG. Its high protein and low saturated fat and carbohydrate content make for a healthy cooking ingredient.
Technically our ground-up crickets are not flour but ‘floured’ so they will behave differently in baked goods as opposed to wheat, coconut, or nut flours. For this reason, it’s best used in conjunction with another flour or flour substitute. If used in large amounts it may adversely affect texture so less is more.
Try the cricket powder on yogurt and you want to have it in that way every day!

Insect food can help us in keeping the food system within environmental limits. To get a kilogram of beef one needs 12 times more feed, 100 times more room, and 22 000 times more water than growing a kilogram of insects. The insects offer a new lasting, ethical, and delicious way to produce the proteins which are necessary to all of us.

Insects may cause an allergic reaction to those who are allergic to, for example, dust mites or shrimp. Food allergens are proteins. Sensitization to insect proteins is possible, just like to any other food proteins. The proteins that insects contain are similar to the proteins of e.g. crustaceans and mollusks. Thus persons who are allergic to prawns, for example, may have an allergic reaction from insect food. Insects may contain traces of gluten.
