We are introducing Nutribug’s new Beanup Butter, a high-protein nut-free spread made with lentils and crickets – but in the form of flour.
High protein cricket powder is the world’s next big superfood, and this is possibly the world’s first nut-free butter to include it. It delivers protein and other essential vitamins and minerals, including iron, calcium, omega-3, and B12. It is also very high in fibre.
This food has all the nutrients any health-conscious person would want without having to chew an insect. Let’s compare this butter to some other high-protein foods. Beanup Butter is made with just 10% cricket powder and delivers more than 24g of protein per 100g. To put that into perspective, that’s more protein than eggs, which offers 13g of protein per 100g.
That is why edible insects are a good choice for anyone who wants a protein-rich diet. Did we mention it’s also gluten-free, nut-free and sugar free?! However, there’s another good reason we should be open to including insects in our diet – sustainability. The crickets used in the butter are farmed in Thailand and compared to other animals bred for meat, they boast high levels of sustainability. For example, crickets have a short ‘rearing’ period and require 1,000 times less food and water than cows.
