With our Cricket Pasta, the most common food in the world gets a revolutionary makeover. This is also a great addition for the fast growing market of food products based on edible insects. The pasta features an exceptional amount of nutritional value: including high protein, calcium, iron, vitamin B12, and Omega 3.
All of these benefits are due to the characteristics of the cricket flour. Protein is the key to the flour, as 70% of crickets are made of protein. As most of you may already know, this superfood is also high in sustainability. Crickets need very little food and water (1,000 time less than a cow) and they grow very fast. For this reason, United Nation’s FAO and other International organization are supporting the diffusion of edible insects in western countries. According to the experts, insects are the protein of the future.
