IN­SECTS ARE SLOWLY MAK­ING THEIR WAY INTO OUR FOOD FU­TURE.

Easy to farm, a rich source of vi­ta­min B12 and higher in pro­tein than chicken, fish or beef, CRICK­ETS are be­ing hailed as the most eco-friendly, sus­tain­able form of pro­tein in the world. Com­pared with other pro­tein-rich foods such as beef or chicken, crick­ets use far less wa­ter, en­ergy and food and they emit sig­nif­i­cantly fewer green­house gases. If the idea of eat­ing a bug is too ab­hor­rent, try cricket flour, which is best used with other flours to add pro­tein.
