Why edible insects...?

Great food source

Our proven and certified feed sources guarantee that the crickets, which jump in our food packets, are 100% vegetable-fed.

What is the cricket?

The cricket is a grasshopper-like insect that is also known for its nighttime chirping.

The house cricket has its roots from Asia and spread worldwide including Europe. It is a great food for human consumption. The cricket flour has mild nutty taste and better nutritional qualities than other edible insects.

What is in the cricket flour?

Cricket flour has a mild nutty taste. It can be used to increase the protein content of any meal. Additionally, any baking ingredient can easily be mixed with the help of the chitin.

  • 68% Protein        
  • 19% Fats        
  • 9% Chitin       
  • 4% Vitamins and Minerals       

Great taste! Our cricket flavors are a fresh ingredient for your active life.

Efficient for the environment! Less water, waste and greenhouse gasses.

Cricket Flour: The True Protein Champion



When it comes to the protein per volume challenge, the cricket flour is an absolute winner. And here are the competitors:

Cricket flour 68%
Beef 33%
Chicken 23%
Salmon 22%
Eggs 12%

Our body proteins are constructed from 20 different amino acids. 11of them (non-essential amino acids) can be synthesized by our body, while the remaining 9 (essential amino acids) can not. The essential amino acids must be provided from the food we eat.

Great protein advantages!

Our protein comes from a true friend of the nature. And here's why...

Greenhouse gas emissions from 1kg of protein

Crickets create less than 1% of the methane produced by cattle for the same amount of protein.

Land for 1kg produced meet

Livestock production is growing every year and now uses nearly 70% of all the agricultural land on Earth.

In order to live in a sustainable world, we need to stop this trend.

Our goal for the next generations is not to expand the amount of land.

We need to expand the potential of our high quality sources of animal protein, reducing the pollution and optimizing the natural resources.

Are crickets water wasteful?

Not as much as the beef, which needs 60 liters of water per gram of protein, the pork (21 liters) and the chicken (6 liters).

The crickets need only 3 liters of water.

The cricket powder is a "Complete protein"

     It’s not the quantity, but the quality that matters. Crickets have predominantly higher indispensable amino acids (g/100g dry weight) than beef, egg and soybean seed.

     According the WHO, the crickets provide all the required essential amino acids for human nutrition.

Still prefer beef?

Yes of course! But we have more things to say...

Collectively, the data show that the crickets contain significantly higher chemically available Ca, Cu, Mg, Mn, and Zn than sirloin.

Commonly consumed insect species could be excellent sources of bioavailable iron and could provide the platform for an alternative strategy for increased mineral intake in the diets of humans.

Safety concerns

It is possible that you could be allergic to crickets if you have an allergy to shellfish. And is much safer than eating the farmed animals’ hormones and antibiotics…

“Vancomycin, the last defense against fighting a number of (deadly blood infections and pneumonia caused by staphylococcus bacteria), is losing effectiveness. According to WHO, “In the struggle for supremacy, the microbes are sprinting ahead and the gap between their ability to mutate into resistant strains and man’s ability to counter them is widening fast.” Some epidemiologists and health experts have even suggested that we may be entering a postantibiotic era in which existing antimicrobials, in general, will lose their effectiveness against the most common infectious diseases.
