June beetles (phyllophaga sp) have a crunchy texture and a fairly bland flavor. Like other beetles, their thicker chitin makes them harder than other edible bug varieties. Because of this, they’re best ground into powder for use as a protein supplement in recipes.
These June beetles are wild caught. They are boiled, dehydrated, salted & sorted by size before being packaged up for you to enjoy. These packages contain only the smaller June beetles (approx. 1.5gr each). 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.
Note: If you are allergic to crustaceans, you might also be allergic to these close cousins.
