Cricket Facts

The one Superfood to rule them all

Nutritional Benefits of Cricket Protein

Crickets are an amazing source of protein in that they don’t mirror the nutritional balance of other traditional protein sources. Crickets contain more fibre than broccoli, more iron than spinach and more omega 3 than Salmon! They also provide the benefits of vitamin B12 and potassium.

Livestock is the 2nd biggest contributor to Greenhouse Gases worldwide

Greenhouse Gases

Livestock production accounts for 18% of greenhouse gas emissions, this is more than what the entire transport sector contributes. There are significant arguments for the consumption of crickets, they produce 1% of the greenhouse gases that cows do while packing more than double the amount of protein!

Feed and Water

Crickets are incredibly efficient with how much they need to eat and drink, to produce 1kg of crickets they only need to consume 1 litre of water and 1.7kg of feed. Compared to a ridiculous 22,000 litres of water and 10kg of feed to produce 1kg of beef.

Humane

Current livestock production methods involve intensive measures to quickly produce enough product to meet current demand and expectations. Chickens and pigs are crammed into small overcrowded pens as it’s the only way to farm them efficiently at scale to meet the high demand, most of these animals won’t live past 20% of their life expectancy.

Crickets are farmed in temperature-controlled rooms clustering together and growing up until they are harvested. When this time comes the crickets have usually lived to 80% of their life expectancy, dry ice is introduced and due to them being cold blooded they fall into a state of hibernation. They are then ground down into a flour and used in our baking process.

Incredibly Efficient

Crickets have an edible percentage of 80% making them one of the most efficient protein sources in the world at converting feed into edible protein. Chickens have an edible percentage of 55% and cows are half as efficient as crickets at 40%.

Crickets are the future food that betters our dogs and our environment.
