A food brand called ActuallyFoods lists Organic Cricket Flour as one of its ingredients. The brand, from Canadian company Entomo Farms, has several new cheese puffs that they say are “actually” good for you.
Yum! They crunch when you bite!
“We’ve ditched so-called ‘natural’ ingredients that are actually not as clean as they claim. Instead, we’re making something you can feel good about, using unexpected ingredients that, although surprising, actually boast the health benefits you’re looking for: like high-protein cricket powders, fava bean, and more,” they write on their site.
The Daily Mail ran an article titled “Scientists plan to feed primary school children crickets and mealworms to make the UK greener,” and a December Bloomberg article was titled “Crickets, Mealworms and Grasshoppers Are Human Food, EU Says” which states that “Insects [are] seen as an alternate source of protein to animal meat.”
