About fit cricket
A real superfood, insect protein is one of the healthiest sources of pure protein and can provide a highly soluble source of vitamins and minerals. You can expect to feel the benefits of B12, Magnesium, Zinc, Calcium, Essential Amino Acids, Omegas, Iron, etc. Not only this, but every Fit Cricket protein bar will provide a whopping 10 grams of protein! A perfect snack for busy parents, athletes, outdoor enthusiasts and everyone in between. Our bars are crafted with love and we know that you will not be disappointed.
The type of cricket we use is Acheta Domesticus. This breed is lighter in colour and flavour than other types of cricket. It tastes slightly nutty and earthy — but mildly so. You probably wouldn’t even know our flour was ground crickets if we hadn’t told you! Even Acheta Domesticus’ texture is like regular flour.
Cricket protein is gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, and egg-free. Our bars are the perfect addition to any high protein diet and can help you fulfill your athletic goals. With 60 crickets per bar, you really get a full spectrum of health benefits. But wait, how are the crickets treated and cultivated? Insects are cold-blooded, so they go to sleep when cold. When it’s time to harvest a batch, the producers simply refrigerate them before grinding them up for flour!
Cricket protein vs. whey protein
It is essential to remember that whey protein is a by-product of the dairy industry and is removed after cheese has been processed. Individuals who have sensitivities to dairy will not be able to tolerate this supplement. Studies have shown that whey protein will alter the gut protein by feeding dairy probiotics (lactobacilli) and hindering the growth of everything else. Whey protein does not have prebiotic fiber to feed and support the growth of healthy and balanced gut flora. Not only this but many Whey protein powders contain high levels of toxic heavy metals and one serving a day could potentially provide daily exposure to arsenic, cadmium, or lead. It is essential to choose an all natural, low processed protein powder – especially if you are consuming it daily.
