House crickets (acheta domestica) have a lightly crunchy texture and a toasty, almost wheat-y flavor – a great choice for people trying edible insects for the first time.
These edible house crickets are raised on a commercial farm for human consumption on a diet of mixed grains & vegetables. They are 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 (about 10 ½ grams per 15 gram packet), iron, and vitamin B12.
Note: If you are allergic to crustaceans, you might also be allergic to these close cousins.
