Q&A


Why should you eat crickets?

Listen, we love a juicy burger just as much as anyone – but it’s unsustainable to have large quantities of meat in our diets. Our idea is that if we include a little cricket powder in our meals and snacks, it will help supplement traditional protein sources so you'll need less ham or fewer burgers. Collectively, if everyone decreased their meat consumption a little bit, it would make a huge impact. 

 

The consensus is that it has a nutty flavor with a hint of sunflower seeds and raw cocoa. You’d be surprised by how many recipes you can incorporate it into.

What does cricket powder taste like?

 

Depending on what you are cooking, cricket powder can act as a protein powder or supplement to baking flour. To be clear, it is not a complete substitute for flour. Our recommendation is to start adding small amounts of it into any recipe that calls for flour: for every cup of flour, try about 25% cricket powder and 75% of the flour that your recipe normally calls for. 

How do you cook with cricket powder?

 

We feed our crickets a 100% organic and non-GMO diet; however, at this time, we (and the rest of the cricket's farms) are unable to get the USDA organic certification.

Are our crickets products organic?

 

Though the crickets are not processed with gluten, they are fed a diet that contains organic wheat.  If gluten-free is a lifestyle choice, you shouldn’t have a problem. If gluten-free is a dietary requirement, please make your own judgement.

Are our crickets gluten-free?

 

If you have a shellfish allergy, then you’re probably allergic to crickets. That's because crickets are anthropods with exoskeletons just like lobsters, shrimp, crabs, etc.

Could you be allergic to crickets?
