Small but mighty

Crickets are 65% protein by weight and are a complete protein that contains all nine amino acids. They’re high in heart-healthy calcium, zinc and iron (2.2 times the amount you’ll find in spinach) and crickets also contain fives times as much magnesium as beef. Did we mention that they have the same amount of B12 as salmon?

Good for you and the planet

By 2050 the world will be home to nine billion people, which is putting a strain on the earth, with masses of agricultural land being used to grow feed for cattle and other traditional protein sources. Crickets produce 100 times less greenhouse gases than beef per pound and use six times less feed to farm. It takes around 2000 gallons of water to produce one pound of beef protein versus only one gallon of water to produce a pound of cricket protein.
