Have you heard about cricket powder?

    Mighty Cricket

    It’s literally what it says on the tin: cricket powder, or cricket flour, is a mild-tasting protein powder made out of milled crickets. Yes, crickets!

    While turning to insects for protein is nothing new, cricket powder is a relatively recent addition to the menu. Not only does it deliver big on protein (as well as iron, Omega-3s and B12), but is also a much more sustainable source compared to meat-based options. Unlike feedlots used for raising and slaughtering cows, cricket farms use less feed and generate fewer greenhouse gases per kilogram protein harvested. There is even 2,000% less water used to produce one pound of cricket protein versus one pound of almonds.

    One US-based, female-run company, Mighty Cricket, produces protein from finely-ground crickets and also uses it in protein powders, oatmeals, pancake and waffle mixes and chocolate bars. All products are free from GMOs, steroids, gluten, dairy, egg, peanuts and soy, making them both good for you and good for the planet.
