Why Crickets?

Because they're as good for the environment as they are for you.

Nutrition

High in Protein

Crickets are over 60% protein by weight, and are much easier for the human body to digest and absorb compared to lactose-based proteins. 

Amino Acids

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and crickets contain high amounts of all nine of the essential amino acids.

Vitamin B12

This vitamin plays a key role in ensuring the proper functioning of the nervous system, as well as the production of red blood cells and DNA. 

Iron

Iron-deficiency anemia is the most common nutritional deficiency worldwide. Crickets contain twice the amount of iron as a comparable amount of spinach. 

Sustainability

The global population is expected to reach 9.7B by the midpoint of this century. To meet that need, food production (specifically protein) will need to double. 

We can't double the amount of farmed cows, pigs, chickens, and fish without serious environmental ramifications.

Crickets can be grown quickly and efficiently, and they don't have the same detrimental environmental impact as other forms of animal protein.

Crickets use less water.

Crickets absorb their water from the food they consume. Compared to cows, crickets consume 2,000 times less water for the same amount of protein. This number grows even larger if you take into account the water required grow the crops the cow eats.

Crickets produce less emissions.

Animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, more than the combined exhaust from all transportation. Crickets produce 100x less GHG emissions than cows for the same amount of protein.

Crickets use less land.

Crickets don't require much space, compared to cows they use 13 times less land for the same amount of protein. Crickets can also be grown near densely populated urban environments, shortening the length of the supply chain.

"For most cultures, eating insects is only natural."

"What we eat and how we produce it needs to be re-evaluated." 

"Insects are the future of protein and the future is now."
