Do you want to bake a thousand pieces of cricket bread or five thousand cricket rolls? With cricket powder bags you can do it!
The plain house cricket powder tastes mildly like rye bread or a roasted chickpea.
It takes over one thousand house crickets (acheta domesticus) to produce 100 grams of our protein-rich cricket flour. One hundred percent natural, free from artificial colors, flavorings, preservatives, and MSG. Its high protein and low saturated fat and carbohydrate content make for a healthy cooking ingredient.
Technically our ground-up crickets are not flour but ‘floured’ so they will behave differently in baked goods as opposed to wheat, coconut, or nut flours. For this reason, it’s best used in conjunction with another flour or flour substitute. If used in large amounts it may adversely affect texture so less is more.
Try the cricket powder on yogurt and you want to have it in that way every day!
This product can be ordered in three grain-sized (fine, standard, rough) but the qualities fine and rough will have a long lead time and the price has to be negotiated customer by customer.
Our crickets are 100% traceable and they are grown delicious in the natural heat of Thailand, the home of the most delicious insect food in the world.
Edible insects are rich in nutrients. The house insects contain plenty of protein, iron, creatine, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and B12, in addition to which there is the fish’s type of omega fatty acid division between the omega-3 and omega-6.
As our crickets are not deep-fried but roasted, our crickets do not contain trans fats that are common in traditional snacks.
Did you know that in grasshoppers, there are five times more antioxidants than in oranges?
With its high B12 vitamin content and healthy nourishment composition, insect food is highly recommended for balancing otherwise mostly vegetarian diets.
The chitin to be obtained from the insect food and its breakdown products, chitooligosaccharides, and chitosan operate like fiber and lower the blood's cholesterol. They also have antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer effects. Furthermore, it has been stated that chitin and its breakdown products will prevent the growth of most harmful intestines bacteria.
As insects lose about 75% of their weight as the water evaporates during the roasting/drying, they are a real power food.
Our crickets are 100% traceable, and they are grown delicious in the natural heat of Thailand, the home of the most delicious insect food in the world.
Insect food can help us in keeping the food system within environmental limits. To get a kilogram of beef one needs 12 times more feed, 100 times more room, and 22 000 times more water than growing a kilogram of insects. The insects offer a new lasting, ethical, and delicious way to produce the proteins which are necessary to all of us.
Shipping costs for international orders are high and we want to offer the best possible service to our customers. In case your order weighs one kilogram or more, you should directly contact our customer service. In that way, we can manually tailor your order and plan the best shipping method for your needs!
Ingredients: Roasted crickets (acheta domesticus).
Farmed in Thailand.
Our crickets come by sea from Thailand, where they grow in tropical 35 degrees Celsius heat which is optimal for crickets. As a result, the carbon footprint of our crickets is much smaller than with insects produced in the heated production facilities of the Northern Hemisphere.
Our cricket farmer follows The Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) is a leading business-driven initiative for companies committed to improving working conditions in the global supply chain.

Insects may cause an allergic reaction to those who are allergic to, for example, dust mites or shrimp. Food allergens are proteins. Sensitization to insect proteins is possible, just like any other food proteins. The proteins that insects contain are similar to the proteins of e.g. crustaceans and mollusks. Thus persons who are allergic to prawns, for example, may have an allergic reaction from insect food. Insects may contain traces of gluten.

OBS! Man kan vara allergisk mot insektmat. Matallergenerna är proteiner. Man kan bli allergisk mot insektproteiner på samma sätt som mot andra proteiner i maten. Proteinerna i insekter är jämförbara med proteinerna i t.ex. skaldjur och blötdjur. Därför kan en person som är allergisk mot t.ex. räkor få en allergisk reaktion av insektmat.
