CRICKETS HAVE BEEN USED AS A NUTRITIONAL SOURCE FOR CENTURIES
Using crickets for protein sounds like a new up-and-coming health trend, but is far from it! Crickets and insects have been included in diets around the world for centuries by many different cultures. At least two billion people worldwide include crickets, or cricket powder, as part of their daily routine.

If you are searching for an environmentally friendly way to consume protein, our Cricket Powder is your answer. Cricket Powder has 2x more protein than beef and is highly digestible unlike animal-based meats like pork and chicken. Crickets are high in protein and low in fat and carbs.

Even small lifestyle changes like adapting your daily diet can make a big impact.
