Dried insects are kind of concentrated meat like beef jerky as they lose about 75% of their weight as the water evaporates during the roasting/drying.The roast house cricket is an extremely lasting raw material in cooking. It also absorbs the sauces and tastes deliciously to himself. For example, half a kilo of roasted crickets is more than enough for a ten-liter tomato-based pasta sauce with crickets as half a kilo of roasted crickets is made of two kilograms of fresh crickets.
Nature loves insectivores!
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.
Our crickets may not be the cheapest because we only accept the best!

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.
