Field crickets (Gryllus bimaculatus) are larger and darker-colored than their house cricket brethren. They also have a more pronounced flavor and aroma.
These field crickets are farm raised for human consumption on a diet of defatted rice bran and dried vegetables. They are then boiled, dehydrated & salted before being packaged up for you to enjoy. All this processing 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 crustaceans, you might also be allergic to these close cousins.
