WHY SHOULD I EAT CRICKET FLOUR?
Cricket flour (Cricket Powder or Acheta Protein ) is the next-generation protein source made from roasted and finely grounded crickets.
The main function of cricket flour in food is to replace meat, as it provides a higher concentration of the same key nutrients – easily digestible complete protein (with the 9 essential amino acids), vitamin B12, iron, and a powerful prebiotic fiber called chitin, while it is much cleaner and much more sustainable.
In other words, Cricket powder is the most sustainable and complete protein source ever discovered.
What is Cricket Powder good for?
So what kind of nutrients does cricket offer as food? In addition to complete protein, cricket contains plenty of healthy fats (i.e. omega-3s) with low amounts of saturated fat. We also absorb omega-3s from cricket 9 times better than we do from plants.
Crickets have twice as much protein by volume as beef, over twice as much iron as spinach and also contains 7 times more Iron than Salmon.
Let’s talk about some of the most important benefits they provide:
*Cricket powder vs other food
✅ Improves Intestinal Health
Cricket contains chitin, a powerful prebiotic fiber different from the dietary fiber found in fruits and vegetables, which constitutes the exoskeleton of arthropods such as insects and crustaceans. Several studies have found that chitin is responsible for reducing inflammation and even reversing cases of irritable intestinal disease. A healthy microbiota is associated with a stronger immune system, more energy, better mood, and better overall health.
✅ Reduces Fatigue
Cricket flour contains more iron than beef. Iron assists in hemoglobin production which transports oxygen in the blood therefore it helps reduce fatigue resulting from a lack of hemoglobin.
✅ Contributes to Brain Activity and Provides Energy
It contains 50 times more vitamin B12 than chicken and 7 times more than salmon. Vitamin B12 is necessary for converting food into energy and for the formation of red blood cells. Additionally, it is essential for the nervous system and brain to function properly.
✅ Promotes Muscle Growth
Cricket is a great source of complete protein that exceeds the amount of protein found in beef, chicken, pork, and fish. It also contains 9 essential amino acids necessary for muscle growth and the entire metabolic process. These amino acids are called “essential” because the body doesn’t produce—they must be consumed through diet.
✅ Natural, Allergen-friendly Food
All our products are made with 100% natural ingredients, and they are gluten and dairy free. Eating real food is one of the most important steps to building a healthy life.
How does Cricket Protein contributes to a more sustainable world?
Cricket requires 1800x less water than beef, consumes 12x less feed, and emits 100x fewer carbon greenhouse gases. Compared to other protein sources, cricket is incredibly efficient at turning natural resources into complete protein.
Another fantastic feature about cricket protein is that it can be farmed indoors, vertically, and in city centers. This frees up land for restoration and other uses.
Plus crickets eat virtually anything. They are a medium for which we can take our food waste and upcycle it back into our food system. They’ll eat your lunch leftovers and the styrofoam it was served in!
