Insects for cooking and baking | Laga mat och baka med insekter

Buy highest quality crickets, mealworms, cricket powder and mealworm powder from us for cooking and baking. Crickets and mealworms can be used in any cooking. The only limit is your imagination!

Crickets/cricket powder is a superfood!

1. 60% complete protein (2 to 3 times more than beef and chicken at equal weight)

The proteins are one of three macronutrients in our diet. They have a major role in our body. In addition to being a source of energy, they have important structural and metabolic functions. Cricket proteins are complete, which means that they contain the 9 amino acids that our body can not synthesize. Cricket powder is, therefore, a good alternative to conventional animal proteins such as beef or pork.

2. As much Omega 3 as salmon (at equal weight), and this in the optimal ratio of 1 for 3 with Omega 6.

Omega 3s and omega 6s are two essential fatty acids that can not be synthesized by our body. They have many functions essential to our health.

3. 1.6 times more calcium than milk (at equal weight)

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in our body. It is stored at 99% in the skeleton, providing structure and support to our body. The rest is contained in body fluids. Although this represents only a minimal proportion, this calcium is vital to the metabolism because it participates in the blood clotting, the secretion of hormones, the contraction of the muscles or the maintenance of the blood pressure. Sufficient intake throughout life is therefore essential, both structurally and metabolically.

4. 2 times more iron than in spinach (at equal weight)

Iron has the essential role of fixing and transporting oxygen in the human body. The lack of iron is the most common deficiency around the world. About 10% of children, adolescents, and women of childbearing age have iron deficiency in the United States. An iron deficiency is manifested in particular by recurrent tiredness during physical activities as well as by headaches.

5. High fiber content

Unlike traditional animal protein sources, the cricket contains fiber, a type of carbohydrate that is found mainly in plants. These help digestion, improving intestinal transit, which helps to prevent constipation. Eating high fiber foods also makes you feel full for longer.

Given these characteristics, it seems already obvious that cricket is very interesting food. But you do not know everything yet.

Not that expensive protein!

The protein content in dried insects and insect flours is 60 – 70% which is 3–4 times more than the protein content in fresh meat or ready-to-cook vegetarian meat substitutes. One can easily calculate and come to the result that the cost of a protein kilo is about the same in good quality beef, vegetarian meat substitutes and dry insect products.

Crickets, the world's most eco-friendly source of complete protein

Cricket powder is one of the most eco-friendly sources of protein in the world. To produce the same amount of edible material as beef, the cricket needs 24 times less food, 2000 times less water and produces 100 times less greenhouse gas! A huge difference when we know that the livestock sector produces as much greenhouse gases as the transport sector, and accounts for two-thirds of the world's cultivated areas.

So why not get started?

And for the record, everyone is already entomophagous. About 500 g of insects are ingested without our knowledge, hidden in salads, fruits, rice, peanut butter, and many other foods.

But what to do with crickets and cricket powder?

You can use whole crickets as snacks or on a salad like you would use roasted onion. Try also frying on a pan with oil and garlic. YUMMY!

You can integrate cricket powder to almost all your recipes: desserts to salads passers by soups ... The possibilities are endless. For example, you can replace some of the flour in your pastries with cricket powder to make them more protein-rich.
