Gluten-Free Organic Cricket Flour
This delicious, roasted cricket flour is packed with 68.75 g protein per 100 g, and is high in all essential amino acids, iron and Vitamin B12.
It is very versatile and can be used for baking, and also mixed into raw recipes.
Try experimenting by replacing about 5 to 10% of the flour in a traditional recipe with cricket flour, and it will add a lovely, nutty flavour to the dish.
One of the most convincing reasons to eat cricket flour is from a health perspective.
Cricket flour contains a whopping 65- 75% high quality protein.
As cricket flour is an animal protein source, it contains all 9 essential amino acids, which are really important for immune strength and muscle development.
Aside from the protein, cricket flour is also high in Vitamin B12, which is important for healthy skin, hair and nails.
Lack of Vitamin B12 can make you feel tired and sluggish, and is generally important for a healthy digestive system.
Just 10 gram of cricket flour contains your daily dose of Vitamin B12.
Cricket flour also contains half as much fat as beef, which is great for people who are watching their fat intake.
Because you literally eat the whole animal and hence also it’s exoskeleton, the iron and magnesium levels are also very high, great for teeth and bone health.Aside from the health benefits, the sustainability angle is extremely powerful.
As mentioned earlier, current livestock production is taking its toll on our planet, and crickets emit 80 times less CO2 than cattle.
That’s a massive difference, as cattle farming is the single worst contributor to global warming, worse than cars, industries etc.
Crickets also use about 10 times less space and significantly less water than cattle, so are a lot more efficient at converting feed into food.
Because you eat the whole cricket, which is 80% digestible compared to 40% of a cow, there is also a big reduction in food waste.
All in all, looking at the impact of cattle farming on the planet compared to cricket farming, the differences are huge.
The cricket flour has been imported from Entomofarms and is organic, as well as gluten- free.
