Cricket flour is ground from crickets, nothing else. It’s a nutritious, high protein powder typically added to energy bars, baked goods and other foods as a nutritional supplement.
This cricket flour is made from field crickets (Gryllus bimaculatus) farmed for human consumption in Thailand on a diet of corn, soybean, fish & chicken meal, pumpkin and morning glories. They are then washed, pressure cooked, dehydrated, ground and packed. The processing and packaging takes place in a modern, FDA registered facility that is certified by the Thailand Food & Drug Administration.
Insects may be the food of the future. They’re nutritious, easy to farm, and use much fewer resources than conventional sources of protein like beef or soy. Crickets are an excellent source of nutrition, packed with protein, iron, and vitamin B12.
Note: If you are allergic to shellfish, you might also be allergic to these close cousins.
